Legislation is often a mine field of information and whilst you know you have to conform to legislation, understanding what they are about and being able to read the reports can be quite tiresome sometimes, so how do you get an understanding of EIC reports ?
Our electrician has forwarded us the following information so that when you get your EIC reports, you can cross reference to this page to get a better understanding of what is really necessary and what is recommended. It is always advised that you ensure that your property is regularly checked and it must conform to legislations if you are letting it out to tenants.
Observations could be things which are wrong with your installation that need rectifying and they are coded. A list of these can be found on page two of your Fixed Wiring Report otherwise known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). The observations or defects are coded according to their danger level, the codes are C1, C2, C3 and FI.
