WHY USE A NICEIC CONTRACTOR?

NICEIC is the UK’s leading voluntary regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry. It has been assessing the electrical competence of electricians for nearly sixty years and currently maintains a roll of over 26,000 registered contractors.
In addition to our core electrical business we provide certification to firms across the heating, plumbing, renewable and insulation sectors. Our focus is supporting firms to help improve their businesses.

We provide a number of products and services specifically tailored to help contractors meet the changing nature of the construction industry. This includes training, technical advice, certification and information on all the latest industry developments. We aim to help firms see past short term survival and prepare for long-term planning.

NICEIC has developed a reputation amongst consumers, specifiers of work and industry for promoting safety, integrity and technical excellence.

Our contractors undergo a rigorous assessment process, covering a representative sample of their work, their premises, documentation, equipment, and the competence of their key supervisory staff. They are then re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure continued compliance.

Insurance Backed Warranty
The NICEIC Insurance Backed Warranty covers work done by contractors registered to the NICEIC Part P Domestic Installer Scheme that is notifiable to Building Control. Should any work be found not to comply with the Building Regulations and where the contractor is no longer in business we will have the work rectified by another NICEIC contractor at no extra cost. Remember to ask the contractor for a Part P certificate on completion of work. The certificate will have the IBW details on it. The financial limit placed on the remedial work is £25,000 for any one installation. The warranty is valid for a period of six years from the date of completion of the original work.

Safety & Competence
Electricians registered by NICEIC are assessed on a regular basis to ensure that they are competent and capable of meeting the relevant technical and safety standards, codes of practice and rules of the Schemes they are registered to.

Compliance with building regulations
Contractors registered to NICEIC Building Regulations Schemes in England and Wales are authorised to self-certify their work to the Local Building Control Body. This saves you both time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the Building Regulations
