Landlord EICR

So we now on AMM2 which we can choose to use mnow  and in September we must use for an EICR.

However that landord act thingy just state to the 18th and no mention of any amendments.

So do they get I & T to the 18th or 18th Amd 1 or 18th Amd 2 today then?

  • Of course when we carry out a Periodic Inspection and Test we compare the installation to the current edition of the IET Wiring Regulations which is BS 7671:2018 Amendment 2:2022. Not some earlier Edition. The PRS legislation only requires compliance with Regulation 651.1 ie. "Satisfactory"., see the guidance from the DLUCAC. So no C1s, C2s or FIs. 

    You may wish to watch the free IET Webinar on this subject on 14th June so you might want to register for this now.

  • Well technically the legislation doesn't state anything about being "satisfactory"; the DLUCAC guidance is just that, not actually the law - in the same way that GN3 isn't technically part of BS 7671. But the the GNs are at least maintained in collaboration  with BS 7671, while the PRS was just incompetent drafting that had to be salvaged by the DLUCAC saying "what we really meant was...". (There is zero requirement in the landlord regs for the electrical installation to be safe.)
