What information should an EICR contain?

An EICR should contain:

  • Your business details and the details of the inspection
  • Any limitations of the inspection – e.g. Were there areas of the system that were inaccessible?
  • Details about the type of system and components in use
  • A list of all the tests carried out and their results
  • A summary of the condition of the system
  • Detailed observations and recommendations for required actions
  • Signature of the contractor completing the tests
