Unpicking reality from requirement: Is it acceptable that an EICR is signed off by the company the electrician works for, or should it be signed off by the electrician undertaking the EICR complete with their EICR Certificate registration number?
Interestingly the NICEIC, Stroma and generic forms from the previous EICRs that I have vary in having ‘Approved Contractors No’, ‘Certificate Serial No/Ref’, ‘Enrolment No’ (presumably this is for the CPS club issuing the blank forms) shown but generally no specific ‘EICR Certificate Ref No’ entry point. It may be that the forms have changed to align with the new PRS requirements on LLs but the unsuspecting LL would not know any different. And yes, every day’s a school day!
My understanding from other discussion threads on here is that the inspecting EICR electrician ought to be skilled and a member of a scheme (presumably NICEIC/Stroma/Other), have a certificate to carry out EICRs and have Professional Indemnity Insurance but not necessarily be a member of a Competent Persons Scheme (CPS).
Apologies for potentially labouring the point, but I’m sure many LLs out there will simply accept the piece of paper that is emailed to them after the event by which time actions C2 and above and errors on the paperwork will have been sent to the Local Housing Authority.
Any Landlord Electricians out there? Can you help bring some clarity to these points, please?
