    New RCD board / EICR exempt?

    Hi there, i have an electrician fitting a new RCD board in our 1910's house, prior to renting out our house for the first time. He advises me that as i am having a new RCD board it fitted means i dont need an EICR certificate for one year, is this correct? Thanks in advance

    Rubbish, he is mistaken and very wrong. The only exemption is for a new or completely retired property

    you need an EIC and part P from the spark AND an EICR from said spark or another spark

      Get another electrician

      Is the electrician registered?

      You should have an EICR first as it may need more work apart from a consumer unit

      An EICR will let you know how things are before you spend more money

      Always use a registered electrician;

      In Scotland

      or

            just to point out there is no obligation to be registered to do EICRs - bizarre yes, but this is factual
