What is NICEIC?
NICEIC stands for National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation.
The NICEIC inspect and regulate work carried out by electricians that are registered with the organisation. For an electrician to become a member, they have to be skilled and qualified in all types of electrical works and installation. Electricians will be carefully and regularly assessed to ensure that they are suitably qualified and meet the highest standards.

This gives our clients ultimate peace of mind and reassurance that any electrical work carried out is done by a qualified, knowledgeable and skilled electrician.

We will work closely with you to keep you informed throughout every step of the process and provide you with a reliable service at a competitive rate.
Approved contractors and domestic installers are required to issue you with a certificate once the electrical work has been completed. This is to confirm that any electrical work carried out has been designed, constructed, inspected and tested in accordance with the National Electricity Safety Standard, BS7671, and meets all the necessary requirements for any electrical installations.
Within 30 days of any electrical work carried out and completed, you will also receive an electrical certificate of compliance from Building Control. This certificate is to confirm that the work complies with Part P of the building regulations. You must be aware that if you do not receive this paperwork from the contractor, you may have used a company that is not NICEIC registered.
