Freedom of Information Request

Electrical Installation Condition Report

Received: 4 October 2021

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information specific to your council area:

* Do you currently collect the data of EICR reports submitted to you detailing electrical hazards identified during a legal five yearly inspection?
* The number of Electrical Information Condition Reports (EICRs) carried out in privately rented homes that have been submitted to you since June 2020* (please specify the council area you are providing figures for in your response)
* Of the EICRs submitted to your council, please break down the number of Category 1 (C1) and Category 2 (C2) failures.
* The number of these EICRs that have subsequently had the necessary remedial electrical work carried out to make the installation safe.

* Private landlords are required by law to submit EICRs that have identified C1 or C2 electrical hazards to the local authority, along with confirmation/proof that these have been fixed. This is following the introduction of mandatory five-yearly electrical checks in privately rented homes in England in June 2020.

I have attached a form - please either fill out the form or provide the information in another format. If you do not keep records of EICRs, please can you indicate this by ticking the last box.
