Landlord Guide to Electrical Safety
Supporting information for Scottish Landlord Registration
From 1st December 2015 landlords are required to undertake two types of electrical checks on their rental properties; an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) and a Portable Appliance Test (PAT).
The two parts to the electrical safety inspection are –
- an inspection of installations, fixtures and fittings – (EICR)
- a record of testing of appliances provided by the landlord – (PAT)
- Full information on how to comply can be found on the Scottish Government website
- Useful information can also be found in on the Electrical Safety-First website https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/
