About the NICEIC
The National Inspection Council for Electrical installation Contractors
What does the NICEIC logo tell you?
- The NICEIC 's independence assures consumers and specifiers that all installation work done by an NICEIC Approved Contractor will meet electrical safety requirements. South City Electrical is an Approved Contractor for the Southampton area.
- Approved Contractors are required to issue a safety certificate for all their electrical work to confirm that the installation has been designed, constructed, inspected and tested in accordance with the national electrical safety standard, BS 7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations. A Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is issued when a report on the condition of an existing installation is required.
- The NICEIC investigates all complaints where Approved Contractors have not complied with the appropriate technical standard and they operate a Complaints Procedure and Guarantee of Standards Scheme .
- Householders have peace of mind knowing that all electrical work undertaken by an Approved Contractor will be safe. Approximately 90% of local authorities in the UK are believed to restrict work to NICEIC Approved Contractors on safety grounds.
