Electrical installation Condition Reports


An Electrical installation Condition Report is intended for the sole purpose of reporting on the condition of an existing electrical installation whether it be domestic, commercial or industrial. The report should identify, so far as reasonably practicable and having regard to the extent of limitations record any damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliance with the IET Wiring regulations BS7671:2018 for the safety of electrical installation. It should however be noted that the greater the limitations that apply to a report, the less the value of the report will be to its recipient.


Although there is no law at present stating that electrical installation condition reports need to be carried out on any type of installation it is highly recommended to keep the installation safe and compliant with the latest safety standards. Most insurance companies will require commercial premises to have an up-to date Electrical Installation Condition Report, Estate Agents will most likely ask you to produce a Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report if you are selling your property and the Government is in the process of trying to make it law for all landlords to have an up-to date Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report for any rental premises.


Recommendations for frequency of carrying out Electrical Installation Condition Reports vary depending on the type of installation and the condition of the installation. For domestic installations it is recommended that they be tested at a maximum of every 10 Years. Most commercial installations are recommended to be tested at a maximum of every 5 Years as are all rental properties. Buildings open to the public e.g. places of entertainment or leisure complexes should be tested at a maximum of every 3 Years. Places identified as special locations e.g. swimming pools, caravan parks and marinas should be tested at a maximum of every 1 Year.


However, these periods may be reduced if the condition of the installation is deemed to be by the engineer testing of an age or condition where more frequent testing is required to ensure continued safety.
