Start From £149.99
What is a Commercial EICR?
A Commercial Electrical Installation Condition Report is a complete assessment of the electrical installations within a commercial property. It evaluates the condition of electrical systems and installations in the property and ascertains whether or not they comply with the safety standards of the country. After that evaluation has been performed, the property owner or occupant will receive a formal document provided by the examining electrician or contractor. This document gives a comprehensive outlook on the state of electrical systems within the property, stating explicitly whether they are in good working condition or if some issues need fixing.
Apart from the report being proof that electrical examination has been carried out on your property, it also shows you some things that could turn out to be lifesavers or “money savers” for you. It gives a complete description of everything important when it comes to the electrical state of your property. It lets you know if there are any faulty installations or wirings, if there are any potential fire hazards or electric shock risks, as well as if there are any overloaded electrical equipment or circuits. By knowing these things, you would be provided with the much-needed information with which you can prevent any possible accidents. Also, if you do not have a certified EICR, your insurance might not cover you if something happens. So, this certificate provides you with two layers of protection. One, to prevent bad things from happening, and two, to protect you from losses even if they do happen.

Now if you’ve not been fully convinced as to why you should get a commercial EICR, then you should also know that the laws in England require all businesses to comply with certain electrical safety standards for them to keep their customers, employees, and property as a whole safe. These regulations are:
- Electricity at Work Regulations 1989: All employers must make sure that their electrical systems are installed and maintained safely to protect the people and property in the workplace. Business owners must also consistently monitor the state of the electrical systems in the building through regular testing and assessments.
- Landlord and Tenants Act 1985: All landlords of commercial and domestic buildings need to ensure that all precautions are in place to protect their tenants and clients from injury through electric shocks and fires. A commercial EICR is very necessary to ensure that all the systems have been tested by a registered electrician. The commercial EICR is evidence that you are complying with these electrical standards and ensure that the property is safe for all customers and employees.
These Regulations Apply to Commercial Properties Including:

Why is an EICR So Important in a Commercial Building?
It is essential for ensuring the safety and compliance of the building and its occupants and is a legal requirement for all commercial properties in London.
But why is an EICR so crucial for commercial buildings?
The answer lies in the potential risks and hazards arising from poorly maintained electrical systems.
According to the study, electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year. These fires result in hundreds of deaths and billions of dollars in property damage.
An EICR can help identify potential hazards and risks within a commercial building’s electrical systems, such as outdated wiring, overloaded circuits, and faulty equipment.
An EICR can help prevent electrical fires and other safety hazards by identifying and addressing these issues.
Regulations & Laws
An EICR is also vital for ensuring compliance with regulations and laws.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the United Kingdom requires that commercial buildings have an EICR conducted every five years.
Failure to comply with this requirement can result in fines and penalties.
In addition to the legal requirements, an EICR provides a valuable resource for building owners and managers.
It can help identify areas where energy efficiency can be improved and serve as a valuable resource for planned maintenance and upgrades.
How often Does EICR Have To Be Carried Out On Commercial Premises?
According to industry standards, it is recommended that an EICR be conducted on commercial premises every five years.
However, certain factors can influence this frequency. For example, if the building is older or has undergone significant changes, more frequent EICRs may be necessary.
In addition, businesses in specific industries, such as healthcare or food service, may require more frequent inspections due to the increased risk of electrical hazards.
In conclusion, not having an EICR will make you liable under UK law for any injuries or damage that is caused by an electrical shock or fire. And without this EICR, it would be difficult for you o prove that all precautions were put in place to ensure the safety of all customers and employees. Also, if you need to make a claim to an insurance company because of an electrical-related accident, they are more likely to cover the damages if an EICR is in place. Our rate for the commercial EICR is £149.99 including VAT for one fuse board.
