EICR in Scotland – About the service (meaning, frequency, and more)
EICR in Scotland is one of Falcon’s main services. An EICR is a vital part of ensuring that your industrial or commercial property is safe. But what is the meaning of EICR and why is it so important?
EICR stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report. The report includes the inspection and testing of all electrical installations, such as light fittings, plug sockets and fuse boxes.
If any electrical installations have become damaged over time, the report will highlight this and suggest repair work to bring them up to standard.
EICR testing in most cases should be carried out every three to five years, to ensure that your industrial or commercial property remains compliant with the law, and to find any damage to electrical installations before they become an issue.
At Falcon Electrical, we provide EICR in Scotland (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, Stirlingshire, Perthshire, Lanarkshire and the rest of the UK ) for a wide range of industrial and commercial properties.
Why is the EICR important? – EICR Scotland
Standards in construction and building management are updated and changed regularly, so it is important to ensure you are compliant with the relevant legislation.
Also, as electrical installations can become damaged through improper use, or simply wear out over time, it is vital that these are monitored.
Damaged electrical installations are a fire risk. This could cause serious harm to customers, visitors or staff. The lack of an up-to-date EICR could open you up to legal action if an accident does happen.
How long does an inspection take?
If your insurance company has highlighted the need for electrical inspection, then you clearly want to get this done quickly.
And so do we.
When you first send an inquiry, you can expect one of our staff to get back to you by the next business day at the latest.
In most cases the whole process from the initial enquiry to the completion of the EICR generally takes about a week to two weeks although this time may vary either way depending on your exact requirements and the size of your installation or premises.
If any repair work is needed, completion time depends on the complexity and the extent of the damage.
