NICEIC has been assessing the technical competence of electricians for over 50 years. The aim is to protect everyone who uses electricity from unsafe electrical installations anywhere. To achieve this, NICEIC maintain a register of qualified, competent electricians. They 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 yearly basis to ensure high standards.
