(EIC’s) Electrical Installation Certificates Scarborough
Electrical Installation Certificates (EICs) and Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificates (MEIWCs) provide you, as the property owner or lease holder with a declaration that the new electrical installation work carried out by your Electrician was installed to the correct standard and that the work was safe to use at the time the certificate was issued.
It is important to keep hold of the certificates as they help future Electricians see what work has been done to the property and when. It will also show the results of the Electrical Testing. This will provide a basis for any further electrical testing or exploratory work needed, thus saving your electrician time, and you money
The EIC will indicate whether the electrical work that has been carried out is: New, an Addition or an Alteration. You should be provided an EIC under the following circumstances: A complete rewire, A new circuit added or a new consumer unit fitted. When a new consumer unit is fitted the Electrician must test every circuit that is connected to it.
