NIC EIC has been assessing the technical competence of contractors for over 50 years.
Their aim is to protect everyone who uses electricity from unsafe electrical installations in their homes, places of work and leisure.
To achieve this they maintain a register of electrical contractors that they assess as complying with the various standards, codes of practice and Scheme rules.
FACT: Approximately 90% of Local Authorities in the UK restrict work to NICEIC Approved Contractors.
Benefits of using us as an NICEIC Approved Contactor:
Safety and Competence:
We are assessed on a regular basis to ensure competency and all criteria is met.
Compliance with building regulations:
We are authorised to self certify our work without hindrance from Local Authority Building Control. This will save our customers time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the building regulations.
Insurance Backed Warrenty:
The NICEIC Insurance Backed Warrenty covers work undertaken by contractors registered to the NICEIC Domestic Installer Scheme that is notifiable to Building Control. The purpose of this Warrenty is to protect consumers should any work be found not to comply with the building regulations under circumstances where the contractor is no longer in business to undertake the necessary remedial work.
Independant Complaints Procedure:
NICEIC operates an independant complaints procedure governing the technical standards of electrical installation of its Approved Contractor and Domestic Installer Schemes. If any electrical work is found to be below the accepted technical standard, NICEIC requires the contractor to correct the work, at no additional cost to the customer. NICEIC is concerned solely with the safety and technical standard of the electrical work carrried out by Approved Contactors and the standard of certification and periodic inspection reports which Approved Contractors are responsible for producing.
Guarantee of Standards Scheme:
NICEIC expects its registered contractors to provide a quality service to their customers and therefore, endeavour to resolve all complaints about the technical standard of their electrical work.
