APN Elec Inspection and Testing

Inspection and Testing

APN Elec offers Inspection and Testing for all Business, domestic and commercial accommodation. We prepare EICR Certificates for all qualifying properties.

It is important for both Business and Domestic premises to consider an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) if there is a change of ownership, a change of tenancy, a change of use of premises, to confirm that electrical installations are safe according to British Standard 7671, and to comply with insurance companies.

The Landlord and Tenant Act (1985) requires that rental properties are safe when a tenancy begins and maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy.
