Electrical Installation Condition Reports

How Long Are EICRs Valid For ?



The frequency of periodic inspection and testing of an installation shall be determined having regard to the type of installation and equipment, it's use and operation, the frequency and quality of maintenance and the external influences to which it may be subjected.

The results and recommendations of previous certificates and condition reports shall also be taken into account.

The engineer will use all of this information and determine the next retest date, see our table below for a guide to how long EICRs are valid for.
