The Government has set new Electrical Safety Standards for the Private Rental Sector in England in 2020. The new regulations 2020 mean that landlords must ensure every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at least every five years by a qualified person.
The new regulations state that a landlord is required to obtain a report of the results of the inspection and test. Then supply it to each tenant within 28 days and retain a copy until the next inspection is due.
An EICR is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It is a formal document that is produced following an assessment of the electrical installation within a property. It must be carried out by an experienced qualified electrician or approved contractor, such as PME Services.
