Emma Clancy, CEO of Certsure which operates the NICEIC and ELECSA brands said: ‘All of the firms listed on the RCPE site meet strict registration requirements which provide householders looking to find a local electrician with the assurances they need.’
Registered Competent Person Electrical was created by all Government approved electrical Competent Person Scheme operators to make finding a registered electrician a simple and easy process.
Michael Andrews, NAPIT group chief executive added: ‘The benefits of using an installer listed on this register include having valid insurance policies in place should anything go wrong, access to a robust complaints procedure, confidence that the correct certification will be supplied and certainty that the installers can self-certify their work against the building regulations where required.
‘Most importantly, you can be sure that the electrical work carried out in your home is compliant with BS 7671, the British Standard for electrical safety, keeping you and your family safe.’
In addition to the search facility, the site also contains useful information regarding the building regulations relating to electrical work carried out in the home along with contact information for all electrical Competent Person Scheme Operators.
