Our Electrical Services
Need An Electrician?
NICEIC registered electricians are regularly assessed to ensure that they are working safely and installing to the highest industry standards. This provides assurance that the electrician you hire has the skills, expertise, and training to complete the work safely.
The NICEIC has over fifty years of industry experience and has an influential position in the industry that has allowed the organisation to campaign on issues affecting the industry and consumers to make the electrical industry better.
The type of certification depends on the type and extent of installation work you have had carried out. There are electrical certifications for alterations, additions and new installations.
EICs (Electrical Installation Certificates) and MEIWCs (Minor Electrical Installation Work Certificates provide the person responsible for the electrical installation safety with a declaration that the alteration, addition or new installation is safe to be used when it was put into service.

What is an EICR?
The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advises that electrical installations are periodically inspected, tested, and certified. An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an inspection of the condition of an existing electrical installation for defects. An EICR is a series of tests which ensure the electrical installation complies with national safety standards as required by the BS7671 Wiring Regulations. This ensures the continued safety of existing electrical installations.
How often is an EICR required?
- Every 10 years for households or domestic dwellings
- 5 years for offices, hospitals, schools, leisure centres and retail
- 3 years for factories and industrial installations
- 5 years for rented accommodation (or change of occupancy)
- 1 year for special locations such as swimming pools & petrol stations
Why do I need an EICR?
An Electrical Installation Condition report is essential to:
- Identify dangerous faults.
- Discover electrical circuits or equipment that is overloaded.
- Find potential fire hazards and potential electrical shock risks.
- Identify defective electrical work undertaken previously
- Discover any missing earthing or bonding.
- Produce a circuit schedule
What is an Electrical Installation Certificate?
The requirements of the BS 7671 IEE Wiring Regulations mean that all completed electrical installations must be inspected for compliance and tested using the correct test equipment before certification and updating of documentation.
