EICR Must be Completed by a Suitably Competent Person!!

Regulation 16 of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires persons to be competent to prevent danger and injury. the HSE publication HSR 25 provides guidance on this.   The landlord is responsible for ensuring the person completing an EICR is suitably competent. Using a firm that is a member of an accredited registration scheme operated by a recognised body will give some degree of confidence that this has been achieved.  In Scotland, this will usually mean that they are a registered with NICEIC or a member firm of the Electrical Contractors’ Association of Scotland (SELECT).

The Electrical Contractors’ Association of Scotland (SELECT) provide online tools for finding local members.

"Prompt, efficient service with work carried out to a high standard and all done on schedule. Good to have a company like this to deal with the electrical side of a rented property. No qualms on recommending."

Jim Milne

"I had a really good experience with ideal electrical solutions. They were very quick to attend the flat to carry out PAT testing and an EICR. They liaised politely with my tenant and took the hassle of arranging access away from me. For this piece of work the price was right and the service was great. Thank you."

Anna Crampin

"This was my first time using Ideal Electrical Solutions for a Landlord's electrical safety certificate and I found them courteous and helpful, arriving on time and dealing with the work efficiently. I will certainly use them again."
