.NICEIC Approved Contractor scheme is for electrical contractors undertaking design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of electrical installations to BS 7671.
The scheme covers:
- electricians working on commercial and industrial installations
- electricians working on domestic installations
- electrical installation condition reporting (testing, inspection, PIRs)
- street lighting installers
- security systems installers
- any other activity covered by BS 7671
NICEIC Approved Contractors are assessed to the highest standards covering all types of electrical contractors and installations.
Here at Elliot Electrical Services Ltd, we understand how important it is for you to have an electrical installation that is designed to suit your requirements. The designed installation we will install for you will be endorsed by the NICEIC Approved contractor scheme.
We are annually inspected by the NICEIC and must have a number of our installs assessed, these are selected randomly from our record – this ensures you have safe and compliant installation with the UK national standards BS7671 (Requirements for Electrical Installations)
What is Part P?
In 2005 the Government introduced electrical safety rules into the Building Regulations for England and Wales. Because of this, most fixed electrical installation work in homes must, by law, meet the Building Regulations.
Part P states that anyone carrying out electrical installation work in a home must make sure that the work is designed and installed to protect people from fire and electric shocks.
Part P applies to any changes made to existing installations, including any parts that have been rewired. In April 2013 further changes were introduced, reducing the range of electrical installation work that is notifiable – removing some requirements in kitchens and outdoors.
You can find full details on Part P on the Communities and Local Government website: www.communities.gov.uk
Electricians carrying out work in England and Wales have to comply with Part P of the Building Regulations whereas in Scotland it is the Building Standards system.
The advantages of using Elliot Electrical Services Ltd to carry out your electrical installation work are:
- You will not have to pay any building-control charges.
- We will deal with everything for you.
- You will receive a Building control certificate that confirms the work meets Building Regulations, along with the Test certification for the work carried out.
- You have to access to a formal complaints procedure if the work doesn’t meet Building Regulations.
- you can choose to take out an insurance-backed guarantee when you have the work done, and you can make a claim if the work is later found not to meet Building Regulations.
What does Part P of the Building Regulations mean to you?
If you choose to use us, you can expect to have safe electrical installation work done, as the work will meet the UK national standard, BS 7671 (Requirements for Electrical Installations).
When the work is finished you will receive:
- an Electrical Installation Certificate or Minor Work Certificate that confirms that the work meets BS 7671; and
- a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate that confirms that the work meets the Building Regulations.
When it comes to improving the electrics in your home, choosing an NICEIC or ELECSA registered contractor is a householder’s best option.
That’s because all NICEIC registered businesses are covered by their Platinum Promise – a promise that protects you against all non-compliant installation work.
Should any work carried out by one of their contractors be found not to comply with the Building Regulations or relevant installation standards (BS7671), NICEIC can instruct the contractor to go back and carry out the work to the required standard. If the contractor is no longer in business or disputes the matter, we will have the work rectified by another registered contractor at no extra cost.
The Platinum promise is valid for up to six years from the date of the completion of the original work and covers work up to a maximum of £25,000 for any one installation.
We know how important it is for you to feel confident in the work carried out in your home or business. Platinum Promise is an assurance that choosing an NICEIC or ELECSA registered installer is always the best option.
