Electrical Saftey Inspections (EICR) Electrical repairs & Remedial work
We can certify your property for continued safe use
You do not have to be fully compliant with the current 18th Edition BS7671, but your property would need to be electrically safe for the safe continued use by your tenant.
Commercial properties need to be compliant with Government Health & Safety in the workplace.
From Electrical Safety Certification Portable Appliance Testing & Emergency Lighting.
We can keep you compliant with all legislation; please contact for further advice on our services.

An EICR shows if the electrical installation is in a satisfactory or unsatisfactory condition and the form includes a list of observations relating to the installation’s safety or aspects that may require improvements.
An EICR will be unsatisfactory if it has any of the following observations classiﬁed as:
- C1 (dangerous)
- C2 (potentially dangerous)
- FI if the need for Further Investigation is identiﬁed.
- Only where there are no observations – or those classiﬁed as C3 are identiﬁed – can the installation be deemed to be satisfactory.
There is much confusion among the non-electrically trained as to what constitutes a satisfactory EICR and how to read and interpret them as they are often lengthy and technically detailed documents.
If the (EICR) fails Napit has issued a certificate which can be added to the (EICR) once the work is completed to allow the five-year certification.
This code is the most common and used to indicate that, while an observed deficiency is not of immediate or potential danger, an improvement would contribute to a significant enhancement of the safety of the electrical installation.
Note, we are going to check for the continued safe use, so the report is coded, and there will be advice given on what is a pass and what is a fail, some examples below.
A Code 1 (C1) observation means ‘ Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action required.’
A C1 represents an immediate threat to safety and should be rectified or made safe as soon as possible.
An example of a C1 defect would be accessible live conductors due to damage, poorly modified enclosures or removed maintenance panels. Incorrect polarity would also attract a code C1 as it may allow conductive parts, not normally expected to be live, to become live.
C1 is an immediate threat to safety the inspector will inform the duty holder or landlord for the installation immediately, both verbally and in writing, of the risk of injury that exists. Access to the faulty circuit may even be blocked or turned off until the defect is fixed
A Code 2 (C2) is not as severe as a C1 but is still a potentially dangerous defect. It may not pose an immediate threat but is likely to become a danger in the future. A C2 is ‘Potentially dangerous – urgent remedial action required.’
The phrase “potentially dangerous”, in the C2 code is to point towards a risk of injury from contact with live parts after a sequence of events. A series of events could mean that an individual may gain access to live parts through a day to day task that would not usually be expected
Code 3 ‘Improvement recommended.’
Meaning something has been identified which does not comply with the latest regulations but is not dangerous. For example, the installation may not comply with the current version of the regulations or may have damaged fittings which do not have exposed live parts. A code C3, in itself, should not warrant an overall unsatisfactory report.
You will need to address C1, C2 and FI faults on your report to achieve compliance with electrical safety regulations. However, it’s always good practice and usually well worthwhile considering rectifying all faults on site. Remember you aren’t obliged to use the same electrical contractor to test and to carry out remedial repairs. You do not need to have the whole installation re-tested after the repairs, but you should obtain a certificate for the changed elements.
An observation code FI ‘ Further investigation required without delay.‘ for example, your electrical testing engineer has observed something carrying out the testing, for instance, circuit protective conductor high measured resistance possible loose connection.
We’ will get you compliant.
Listed Buildings or buildings with a difference, we will get you compliant and certified for letting or the safety of your family.
We Work With Your Budget
The legislation requires you to let a safe property; some of these properties have not had an electrical makeover for many years. New electrical work needs to be compliant with 18th Edition of BS7671, and existing electrical installations need to be electrically safe for continued use this is important information.
We will endeavour to work with your budget and if there are issues we can work with these and all work is Part P compliant and certified.
In some circumstances, it may be more practical for your budget to complete the work yourself using a competent person. If this is more suitable, we can still certify this work as long as it is up to the current regulations BS7671.
One Goddon Electrical is also registered as Third Party Certifiers and will deal with all relevant documentation certification and if need building control.
Book Your Property & Let Us Do the Rest
You don’t need to be there in person some of our clients live a tremendous distance from the property or employ an agent or property manager. We only need your details for certification billing and general contact. We will need the tenant’s contact detail and permission to enter the property to carry out the work or test for your certification.
We would also need the agent or managers email address to send a copy of the (EICR).
We accept all forms of payment, including card payments and do this with your email address.
Electrical Services You Can Trust
No Hidden Fee, Same day report with certification in most applications
EICR No Hidden Fees
Our pricing is based on three hours, including writing the report and certificate on site. If we find minor issues during testing, we will correct at the time with no extra charge.
Electrical Survey reports
Electrical Survey Reporting is very much like the (EICR) with the exception it goes much more in-depth. It will contain information on the condition as with the (EICR) but also provide a detailed report with regards to the costing of remedial work if required. This service is particularly useful if you intend to change the use of the property, for example, install a second kitchen or change the general use of the property, for example—large property to Bed and Breakfast, or (HMO) house of multiple occupation.
