What is the Electrical Installation Certificate?

It is the safety Certificate which confirms that the electrical installation work to which it relates has been designed, constructed and tested in accordance with BS 7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations). It is a legal requirement.


The Electrical Installation Certificate is required for:
- New installations
- When a new circuit or circuits are installed to an existing installation
- The changing of a consumer unit (distribution board)
- When a circuit is altered and the alteration requires changing of the protective device.

After the initial verification, once the full inspection and testing procedure has been carried out, an Electrical Installation Certificate must be completed. This is legally required.

To be valid the Electrical Installation Certificate must be accompanied by a:
- the Schedule of Inspections
- the Schedule of Test Results.

The original document must be given to the "person ordering the work" and a copy should be kept by the electrician who completed the inspection and testing.
