Electrical Installation Condition Reports Dundee
What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)? Its a check that is carried out by a trained electrician to ensure electrical integrity within a property. It used to be called a a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) or safety certificates.
We have seen people confuse EICR’s & PAT Testing. Pat Testing is checking any portable equipment. EICR’s check the physical wiring in an installation and the circuits to ensure if they were to develop a safety critical situation that they would respond quick enough.
Landlords are required by Law to check annually and keep a copy of an EICR. Residential customers there is no legal requirement but we think this may change over the next few years with the implementation of fixed smoke detectors to be installed in properties from 2022.

Unless it’s explicitly stated from your insurance company there is generally no requirement to have a valid EICR.
