    Hi all, My friend has rented a property and I assume a spark has been called by the estate agents to do an EICR, my mate noticed that none of the sockets have come off the wall as they have been painted over. He just sent me the paperwork he got when he rented the property and he has issued an...

    Lead sheathed 2 core lighting circuits /EIC

    Evening All, I'm changing a CU from rewirable to 6 x RCBO in a Victorian flat. The two lighting circuits are lead sheathed 2 core, they appear physically undamaged though I've yet to test them but is this an automatic EIC fail? The switches and pendants are all plastic. Thanks for any pointers, Pete

    EIC issuing?........

    A question came up today - do you actually have to have any qualifications to issue an EIC? It would show conformity of the installation to BS 7671 so do you have to have taken the 18th regs exam or not? Obviously it is not a sensible idea but i was just wondering? I am reffering to it from...

    Wired two RCD sockets on a radial today next to a sub-DB in a large factory unit. The new circuit was connected to an existing redundant 20a MCB which had served a control item which I'd disconnected a while back. Now based on the possibly iffy logic that because the protective device was...

    Is EIC required for this job (New CU & ring main) Electrician says no?

    Hi, I've contacted an electrician to install a new consumer unit, as well as a new ring main into the loft. I asked if his quote included the appropriate certification, I assume an EIC, he said "as far as certification is concerned you don't need any as it's straight replacements", I checked my...

    CU change, submitted EIC but landlord wants eicr too?

    i was under the impression that a board change requires a eic as that is all that was altered and to be taken responsibility for? im thinking the landlord is trying for a free eicr out of my boss, i certainly dont want the liability of the existing installation.
