NICEIC has been assessing the technical competence of electricians for over 50 years.
The aim of NICEIC is to protect everyone who uses electricity from unsafe electrical
installations anywhere. To achieve this, we maintain a register of qualified, competent
NICEIC 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.
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
Safety and 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 are authorised to self-certify
their work without hindrance from Local Authority Building Control. This saves you
both time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the Building
Insurance Backed Warranty
The NICEIC Insurance Backed Warranty covers work done by contractors registered to
the NICEIC Domestic Installer Scheme that is notifiable to Building Control. The
purpose of the Warranty 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. So 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
per period of insurance and the warranty is valid for a period of six years from
the date of completion of the original work.
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. If a customer and an Approved Contractor are unable to
resolve an alleged deficiency in the technical standard of electrical work, the customer
can make a formal complaint to NICEIC. NICEIC will help facilitate the negotiations
between the contractor and the complainant.
As described below, the NICEIC Complaints Procedure requires the an NICEIC-registered
contractor to resolve the technical deficiency without additional cost to the consumer.
However, if the contractor does not undertake the required remedial work, NICEIC’s
Guarantee of Standards Scheme ensures it will be done by another NICEIC-registered
contractor, at no cost to the customer.
Independent Complaints Procedure
NICEIC operates an independent complaints procedure. If the electrical work of a
registered contractor 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 carried out by Approved Contractors, and the standard of certification and periodic
inspection reports which Approved Contractors are responsible for producing.
Benefits of using a TrustMark registered Tradesman
TrustMark is a government-backed initiative to assist consumers to find a reputable
NICEIC is one of a limited number of scheme providers authorised to award TrustMark
to electrical contractors.
TrustMark is an initiative supported by the Government, the building industry and
consumer groups to help consumers find reliable and trustworthy tradespeople to make
improvements and repairs to their homes. If a firm displays the TrustMark logo consumers
can be assured that it has been checked against a set of standards set by the Government
by a TrustMark approved body.
The TrustMark initiative recognises the difficulty consumers face in selecting reputable
construction industry companies to undertake work in their homes. The concept is
to promote an identification mark which will become widely recognised by consumers
as a mark of integrity, and allows them to avoid rogue traders and have confidence
in the standard of work undertaken.
TrustMark approved tradesmen : key benefits
What is TrustMark
TrustMark is a quality mark which operates a framework under which 30 plus scheme
operators work in the RMI (repair, maintenance and improvement) sector, including
trade associations, local government trading standards teams, and independent scheme
operators. These schemes are approved to carry the TrustMark logo and recruit reputable
and trustworthy tradesmen. This enables the TrustMark scheme operators to promote
improved RMI sector standards, and tackle related issues such as better enforcement.
All of these scheme operators are audited annually by TrustMark, to ensure processes,
standards and complaint procedures are being maintained.
