Are you landlord in Stoke-on-Trent who needs an EICR?
Every electrical installation in Stoke-on-Trent deteriorates with use and time. Therefore, if the safety of users is not to be put at risk, every electrical installation must be periodically inspected and tested by a competent person in order to compile an Electrical Installation condition report or EICR.
What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a document that outlines the results of an electrical safety inspection on a property in Stoke-on-Trent. The report assesses the safety and condition of a building’s electrical system, including the wiring, fittings, and other equipment.
What is the point of an EICR?
The purpose of an EICR is to identify any potential safety hazards or issues with the electrical system that could cause harm to people or property. The report will provide recommendations for remedial actions that should be taken to rectify any issues found.
Do I need an EICR?
An EICR is often required by law for commercial properties and rental properties to ensure that they meet electrical safety standards. However, it is also recommended for residential properties in Stoke–on-Trent to ensure the safety of the occupants and maintain the property’s value.
How often do you require an EICR?
It is recommended that an EICR be carried out at least once every five years or more frequently if there have been any significant changes to the electrical system or if there are any concerns about its safety.
What happens after an EICR is conducted?
If an EICR is conducted and faults are found, the electrician will provide you with a report detailing the faults, defects, or hazards that have been identified. The report will be coded according to the severity of the fault. The codes used in the report are as follows:
- C1: Danger present, immediate remedial action required
- C2: Potentially dangerous, remedial action required
- C3: Improvement recommended
What remedial work may be required?
The remedial work required will depend on the severity of the faults identified in the EICR report. Some common remedial work required may include:
Repairing or Replacing Equipment
If any of the equipment in the electrical installation is faulty, it may need to be repaired or replaced. This may include sockets, switches, light fittings, or consumer units.
Upgrading the Electrical Installation
If the electrical installation is not compliant with the regulations set out in the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, it may need to be upgraded. This may include upgrading the consumer unit, installing residual current devices (RCDs), or upgrading the wiring.
Other Remedial Work
Other remedial work may include:
- Replacing damaged cables
- Ensuring adequate bonding and earthing
- Improving the ventilation in the switch room
- Replacing damaged conduits
What steps should you take to ensure your electrical installation is safe and compliant?
If faults are identified in the EICR report, it is important to take action to ensure that your electrical installation is safe and compliant. The following steps should be taken:
Prioritise the C1 faults
If any C1 faults are identified, they should be prioritised, and remedial work should be carried out immediately to ensure the safety of the occupants of the property.
Address the C2 and C3 faults
The C2 and C3 faults should also be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the electrical installation complies with the regulations set out in the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020.
Document the remedial work.
Once the remedial work has been carried out, it is essential to document the work that has been done. This may include photographing the work and recording any certificates or test results.
Can I use the same report for multiple properties?
The EICR report is specific to the property in Stoke-on-Trent that was assessed. While the format and content might be similar, the report is tailored to the individual electrical installations and conditions observed at that property.

Tiger Bite Ltd
He came promptly after I called him out at around 7pm on a Friday due to an emergency where my power was lost in one half of the kitchen and a couple of rooms next to the kitchen. He was polite and knowledgeable whilst diagnosing this issue and was keeping me constantly updated, initially we thought it was a faulty socket that caused the power outage but it turned out more to that and I watched him and his team member diligently work out what the issue was and at pace. Once he found the solution, he and his team member fixed the issue promptly allowing me to relax and not stress over the weekend. I felt the price was reasonable especially as this was a Friday night. Fantastic service and excellent work. I highly recommend Mir Electrical.
A straight forward service from start to finish. MIR Electrical helped us with our extension and outdoor lighting. They explained and clearly quoted what needed to be done prior to the works being done and completed the job as stated. Would recommend and use again in the future
Very knowledgeable, highly skilled & professional. The full re-wire was carried out quickly and to a high specification at very competitive prices. I Will definitely use Mir Electrical again should the need arise.
