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 in their homes, places of work and elsewhere. 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 competent and conscientious about the service they offer customers would consider it a priority to enrol. Over 25,000 contractors are registered by NICEIC, covering the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland.
