Electrical Installation Condition Reports are commonly known as EICR, FWT or Fixed Wire Testing, EIT or Electrical Inspection and Testing and were formally known as Periodic Inspection and Testing, PIR.
In 2012 regulations were amended and Electrical Installation Condition Reports were born. More emphasis has been placed on the visual inspection with the actual report guiding the testing engineer through the inspection and test process in accordance with the Wiring Regulations British Standards 7671 and the IET Guidance Note 3 for Inspection and Testing.
Do you need to Inspect and Test?
The law simply requires an employer to ensure that precautions are taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity at work activities. A record of the condition of electrical systems must be kept. It is up to the responsible person in the company to assess risk and set the maintenance regime to ensure the Electricity at Work Regulations and the Health and Safety at Work Act are complied with.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report undertaken correctly would determine any defects that may exist in the electrical system and highlight them in the report. Once the defects are corrected the report demonstrates due diligence affording you compliance and giving you complete peace of mind. If you are unsure what you need to do then speak to us and we can advise you once we have reviewed your specific needs relevant for your workplace. We are here to help you.
