C2 – potentially dangerous and remedial action is needed urgently.
C3 – improvement to your electrical system is recommended. C3 is the only classification code that can appear on a report and still pass the EICR test.

Charge point installation was straightforward and, on the appointed day, the fitting was completed quickly and tidily. A repeat visit was needed due to a fault with the charger (no issue with installation). Mr Electric were pro-active, arranged an early appointment and minimised the inconvenience.
Had MR Electric to move a bedroom light switch, install ceiling spot lights to replace my old tried light fitting, they also installed new sockets ahead of new fitted Wardrobes. Excellent prompt service at an excellent price. Well done guys would recommend you to anyone
