The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 also require that precautions are taken against the risk of injury sustained from electricity used in work activities.
How Often should I have an EICR?
Electrical installations are not immune to the process of ageing, deterioration and even general wear and tear. For this reason, an EICR should be conducted at regular intervals. British Standard BS 76719 (IET Wiring Regulations) recommends the following intervals for businesses, landlords and homeowners:
- Businesses – employers are recommended to have an EICR test undertaken once every five years.
- Buy-to-let or rented property – landlords should have an EICR test done every five years or when new tenants enter the property.
- Homeowners – an EICR is recommended every 10 years. If the property has a swimming pool, this should be tested once every year.
