We are registered with NICEIC Approved Contractor one of the government approved competent person schemes who regularly assess our work to ensure that we are compliant.
Approved contractors undergo a rigorous assessment process, covering a representative sample of their work, their premises, documentation, equipment, and the competence of their key supervisory staff.
They are then re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure continued compliance.

What is Part P?
Many house fires and serious injuries are caused every year in the UK by unsafe electrics in the home. If you attempt DIY electrical work or use an unregistered electrician you could not only be completing works that do not comply with current building regulations but you could also be putting your life and your home at risk.
Part P of the Building Regulations is a safety legislation which establishes a minimum safety standard for electrical installations in dwellings. A registered electrician will be able to provide you will the relevant certificates required and self-certify their work is sufficiently competent.
NICEIC operates an independent complaints procedure governing the technical standards of its Approved Contractor and Part P Domestic Installer Schemes. If the work of a registered contractor is found to be below the accepted technical standard, NICEIC can require the contractor to correct the work at no additional cost to the customer.
NICEIC regularly promotes the importance of employing an approved contractor to homeowners. Aside from the assurance of safety and competence of work, additional benefits to the consumer include guaranteed compliance with building regulations, an insurance-backed warranty and access to an independent complaints procedure, should a problem arise.
