National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC)
Safety in the home and at work is essential, especially when working near or with electrical equipment. With that in mind, when electrical work needs to be done an approved contractor is necessary. Since January 2005 Part P of the building regulations requires by law that you use an approved contractor for most areas of the home. In particular bathrooms, kitchens, gardens and outside areas are forbidden zones for non Part P approved installers. For more information see the NICEIC website.

The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) will ensure that the company complies with all national safety standards, including BS 7671 (the IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) Wiring Regulations).

“The NICEIC’s sole purpose is to protect consumers from unsafe and unsound electrical work.” NICEIC
“Approximately 90% of local authorities in the UK are believed to restrict work to NICEIC Approved Contractors on safety grounds.” NICEIC
