Fulcher Edwards Ltd carry out a lot of Electrical Installation Condition Reports aka EICR’s, EIC Report, Home Buyers Certificate, Landlords Test, Periodic Inspections in St. Albans & surrounding areas and usually after we send the EIC Report we have a lot of questions especially if it reads Unsatisfactory.
Depending on the size of the property will depend how big the report is but some can be quite a few pages long, especially for commercial premises. within your EIC Report there is an Observations and Recommendations Page, sometimes more than 1, that basically lists the items, descriptions and codes. Each observation has been allocated as appropriate a code which indicates to the person(s) responsible for the installation, the degree of urgency for remedial action.
At the bottom of each of these pages there is a description of codes which are as follows;
C1 – Danger Present – Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action required.
C2 – Potentially Dangerous – Urgent remedial action required.
C3 – Improvement Recommended.
FI – Further Investigation Required Without Delay.
If your EIC Report is deemed as Unsatisfactory then your chosen electrician in St Albans, London and Herfordshire will also send you a quotation for the remedial works for your consideration. Fulcher Edwards Ltd usually breaks the quote down into the relevant coding for ease for our customers.
We usually go through the recommended remedial works with our customers so they know what to expect so they can plan appropriately and they get us booked in as soon as they can.
We always advise our customers not to panic when they see a C1 or C2 on their EIC Report but to take it seriously and aim to get it rectified ASAP.
