The main benefits of using a Contractor registered by NICEIC include:

Safety and competence

Contractors registered by NICEIC are assessed on a regular basis. Therefore, this ensures that they are competent and capable of meeting the relevant technical and safety standards, codes of practice and rules of the Schemes. Each Scheme has a defined set of competence criteria, that contractors must meet to achieve and maintain registration.

Compliance with building regulations

Secondly, contractors registered to NICEIC Building Regulations Schemes are authorised to self-certify their work. This saves you both time and money when undertaking work.

Insurance Backed Warranty

The NICEIC Insurance Backed Warranty covers work undertaken by Contractors registered to the NICEIC Domestic Installer Scheme. Therefore, the purpose of the Warranty is to protect Consumers should any work not comply with Building Regulations.

The financial limit placed on the remedial work is £25,000. Which per any one installation per period, is valid for a period of six years from the date of completion of the original work.

Independent Complaints Procedure

NICEIC operates an independent complaints procedure governing the technical standards of electrical installation of its Approved Installer Schemes. 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. Furthermore, it is also concerned with the standard of certification and periodic inspection reports which Approved Contractors are responsible for producing.

Guarantee of Standards Scheme

NICEIC expects its registered Contractors to provide a quality service to their Customers. Therefore, NICEIC endeavour to resolve all complaints about the technical standard of their electrical work. If a Customer and an Approved Contractor are unable to resolve a complaint, the Customer can make a formal complaint to NICEIC.

Finally, as described above, the NICEIC Complaints Procedure requires the NICEIC registered contractor to resolve the complaint 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.
