Electrical Certificates and Reports
 

Here are some of the certificates, reports and notices an electrician may issue in regards to the condition of your electrical installation.

MINOR WORKS 

An electrician would issue a Minor Works Certificate when carrying out minor electrical works in a property. This certificate confirms that the work has been completed in accordance with the relevant safety standards and regulations. It is typically issued for works that do not involve the installation of a new circuit or major alterations to an existing one.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

An electrical installation certificate would be issued after an electrical installation has been completed and inspected by a qualified electrician. This certificate confirms that the installation meets the required safety standards and regulations.

EICR

An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is used to assess the safety and condition of an electrical installation in a property. It identifies any potential hazards or defects and provides recommendations for remedial action.

LANDLORD ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION SAFETY RECORD

A landlord electrical installation safety record is a document that shows the results of an inspection and testing of the electrical installations in a rental property. It is a legal requirement for landlords to have this record and to ensure that their properties meet the necessary safety standards. The record should be kept up to date and made available to tenants and relevant authorities upon request.

PORTABLE/ FIXED APPLIANCE TEST

PAT testing, or Portable Appliance Testing, is a process of checking electrical appliances to ensure they are safe to use. This involves a visual inspection and a series of electrical tests to identify any faults or potential hazards. PAT testing is important for businesses and individuals to comply with health and safety regulations and to prevent accidents caused by faulty electrical equipment.

TEMPORARY INSTALLATION CERTIFICATE

A temporary installation certificate would be issued when a new installation or alteration of an electrical system is completed but the final inspection cannot be carried out due to certain reasons such as incomplete work or inaccessible areas. The certificate allows the electrical system to be energized temporarily until the final inspection can be completed.

ARC FAULT RISK DECLARATION 

An electrician may issue an arc fault risk declaration when they have identified potential arc fault hazards in an electrical system. This declaration would typically outline the specific risks and provide recommendations for mitigating them. It may be required by local regulations or requested by a client as part of a safety assessment.

SURGE RISK DECLARATION 

An electrician would issue a surge risk declaration when they have assessed the electrical system and determined that there is a risk of power surges that could damage electronic devices or cause electrical fires. This declaration is typically issued as a precautionary measure to inform homeowners or business owners of the potential risks and to recommend steps to mitigate those risks.

CARAVAN/ MOBILE HOME EICR

In the UK, a motorhome requires an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to ensure that the electrical system is safe and complies with the regulations. It is recommended to have an EICR carried out every 3 years or when there is a change of ownership.

MOBILE/ TRANSPORTABLE UNIT EICR 

A mobile unit in the UK requires an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to ensure that the electrical installation is safe and complies with the current regulations. This is important to ensure the safety of the occupants and to avoid any potential hazards.

DANGEROUS SITUATIONS REPORT

An electrician would issue a dangerous situations report when they encounter a situation that poses a significant risk to the safety of people or property. This report is used to document the hazard and notify the appropriate parties to take action to address the issue.
