EICRs – should appliances be included?Make Text Bigger
Under the Regulations a landlord must ensure every electrical installation in the residential premises is inspected and tested at regular intervals by a qualified person
“electrical installation” has the meaning given in regulation 2(1) of the Building Regulations2010(4); which says:
“electrical installation” means fixed electrical cables or fixed electrical equipment located on the consumer’s side of the electricity supply meter; (Building Regs 2010 S2 (1))
Does “fixed electrical equipment” include hard wired appliances such as cookers (built in or free standing), storage heaters and the like or does it just mean such things as switches, sockets, consumer units etc.?
If not, what tests or safety checks, if any, are recommended for such appliances?
