The NICEIC has been assessing the technical competence of electricians for over 50 years. Our aim is to protect everyone who uses electricity from unsafe electrical installations anywhere. To achieve this, we maintain a register of qualified, competent electricians.
We look at a representative sample of the contractor's work, their premises, documentation, equipment and the competence of their key supervisory staff. Once contractors become registered with NICEIC they are re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure high standards.
Enrolment with NICEIC is voluntary, but electrical contractors who are conscientious about the service they offer would consider it a priority to enrol. Over 25,000 contractors are registered by NICEIC, covering the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland. This means that you're sure to have a choice of competent contractors operating in your area.
The Main Benefits of using a contractor registered by NICEIC include:
Safety and Competence
Compliance with Building Regulations
Insurance Backed Warranty
Guarantee of Standards Scheme
Independent Complaints Procedure
