FI Further Investigation required without delay.To be attributed where the inspection has revealed apparent deficiency that could not, due to the limitations or extent of the inspection, be fully identified and further investigation may reveal a Code C1 or C2 item. An example could be where characteristics of electricity supply (such as voltage or external earth fault loop e impedance Ze) do not conform to supply industry norms
Codes on Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
The codes are used to determine whether or not there are non-compliance or faults with the electrical installation. Are numbered C1, C2, C3, F1. These codes are entered on the Electrical Installation Condition Report, together with a description of the nature of the fault, and will determine whether a ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’ report will be applied to the installation.

All inspections and testing are done with the latest technology equipment. We use the most modern software (generation) to fill electronic Electrical Certificates.
Purpose of periodic inspection and testing
this Is necessary because all electrical installations deteriorate due to a number of factors such as damage, wear, tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, ageing and environmental influences. Consequently
(a) legislation requires that electrical installations are maintained in a safety condition, and this lends itself to periodic inspection and testing
(b) licensing authorities, public bodies, insurance companies, mortgage lenders, others may require as is for example the case for house in multiple occupation.
(c) additionally, it should be considered in the following circumstances:

Code C1 Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action is required.
Typical examples of this include:
A broken socket exposed live conductor
Blanking plate missing on Consumer Unit (fuse board) ...
The Remedial work is agreed with the client as a separate quote.
Code C3 Improvement recommended.
This code more often than not implies that while the installation may not comply with the current BS7671 it complies with a previous set of regulations and so is deemed to be safe even though safety could be improved.
Typical examples of this are:
No RCD protection on lighting or power circuits. (An RCD, or residual current device, is a life-saving device which is designed to prevent you from getting a fatal electric shock if you touch something live)

Purpose of periodic inspection and testing:Documentation filled. Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
Periodic Inspection and Testing (sometimes referred to as Periodic Electrical Inspection) is a procedure completed by qualified electricians and is carried out to ensure that the installation is safe and has not deteriorated and to provide an engineering view on whether or not the installation is in a satisfactory condition where it can continue to be used safely.
