VIR

(Visual Inspection Report)

A Visual Inspection Report (VIR) is an in-depth visual inspection of the fuse board and all accessories, such as sockets and switches, to identify any visible signs of defects, damage, or deterioration.

A VIR is an annual inspection that is required 12 months after an Electrical Installation Condition Report. An EICR is needed for pre-existing tenancies before 1st April 2021, and for any new tenancies.

Upon tenancy changeover or your annual visual inspection, you should be checking the fuse board for any signs of electrical hazards.

If you don’t know what size cables should be in each fuse, and are unable to identify any minor signs of burning, then do the right thing; instruct a competent tradesperson. You may be held liable for hazards that are not identified.

Visual Inspection Report (VIR)

Our VIR process:

At NSI, we will assess the condition of all fixed electrics within your property. This includes:

  • Checks to all wiring, light fittings, socket-outlets, and the consumer unit.
  • An assessment of any visual signs of burning, overheating or damage.
  • Identifying and eliminating any potential safety hazards.
  • Checks to the electrical installation, to identify that there are no signs of modification or alterations during the tenancy period.

Notes will be taken by a qualified engineer as part of the Visual Inspection and a VIR will be issued on completion. This will record hazardous observations, recommendations on how to increase safety, and provide an overall summary of the condition of the installation.

Why carry out a VIR?

  • Electrical installations must be regularly maintained for liability and safety purposes.
  • An EICR is conducted every 5 years. Hazards may arise before the next EICR is due.
  • Have peace of mind that your property has been checked by a qualified electrician year on year.
