You have an EICR done by a NAPIT registered professional – it raises a few C’3. The report actually states ‘ There are no items adversely affecting electrical safety, and the C’s listed are categorised and listed as ‘Improvement recommended’.
What does this actually mean?
Yes, I have legally ticked the box for the check to be done and got a copy of this myself, and a copy will also be sent onto the tenant for which they will acknowledge receipt.
I reiterate there is NO immediate or urgent action stated anywhere in the report and the professional has given an assessment that another check is to be done in 5 years.
The last page of the report states C3 coding…
Where an observation has been given a Classification code C3, the inspection and/or testing has revealed
a non-compliance with the current safety standard which, whilst not presenting immediate or potential
danger, would result in a significant safety improvement if remedied. Careful consideration should be
given to the safety benefits of improving these aspects of the installation. The NICEIC Approved Contractor
issuing this report will be able to provide further advice.
Do I now have to be an expert myself in interpreting the level of risk that a C3 poses against any work to correct this ‘recommendation’?
Surely if the issue were a real ‘this needs doing now’ which is itself if based on the professional electricians own analysis it would be a C1 or 2?
