Why choose an NICEIC approved Electrician?

WHY CHOOSE US?
Safety and competence

The NICEIC is the number one regulatory body for electrical contractors in the UK. At Shepley Electrical we are proud to be one of over 26,000 registered NICEIC approved contractors. The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) Approved Contractor Scheme is a system that allows electrical contractors to showcase their competence in electrical Installations. By using an approved contractor like Shepley Electrical you can be sure that we adhere to the high standards of safety, competence and customer service set by the NICEIC.

In order to register as an approved contractor, Shepley Electrical had to complete the strict NICEIC application assessment. For the first stage of the assessment, an NICEIC engineer conducted an office audit to make sure we had the correct documentation and paperwork in place. We were required to demonstrate that we had an appropriate health and safety policy for our business size. The engineer also checked that we had an adequate number of serviceable test instruments appropriate to the range and scale of our electrical work. The next stage of the assessment involved a site visit where the engineer carried out a detailed site inspection. This enabled us to demonstrate that the work we do meets the required technical standards.

Being an approved contractor is not as simple as a one off assessment however; since passing the initial assessment, we have been annually assessed to ensure we maintain NICEIC standards. This gives you peace of mind that we will design, install, commission and maintain electrical Installations safely and to a high standard. It also makes sure that our work, staff, equipment and documentation is regularly monitored, demonstrating our on-going commitment to being a reliable and trustworthy contractor.

How does the scheme work?

All Which? Trusted Traders go through a standard assessment, which involves checking their references and qualifications.

They also carry out a face-to-face interview to check their business is in good shape.

In addition, all Which? Trusted Traders have to comply with a code of conduct. If they don’t, they can be suspended or removed from the scheme. You can find out more about the rigorous assessment process on the Trusted Traders website. 

Should anything go wrong, Which? Trusted Traders are members of an alternative dispute resolution service, which gives you recourse to an independent ombudsman in the unlikely event of a dispute.

  • If something goes wrong and your trader couldn’t complete a job to your satisfaction, you’re not going to be left in the lurch. You will have access to an independent dispute resolution scheme, to help mediate and resolve the issue.
  • Access to moderated user reviews – positive and negative – to give you the extra confidence of reading about other people’s experiences.

Why is it Important to carry out and electrical Inspection?

All electrical Installations deteriorate with age and use. They should be therefore be Inspected and tested at regular Intervals to check wether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety check are referred to as “Perodic Inspection and testing.

A Periodic Inspection will:

  • Reveal if your electric circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • Find potential electric shock risks and fire risks.
  • Identify any defective electrical work.
  • Highlight any lack of earth or bonding.
  • Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe.
  • A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is Invaluable for a property.

How Often Should I Get My Electrical Installation Inspected?

Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. You need to ensure that your tenant(s) – or anyone entering or using your property – are not put at risk, by ensuring that the electrical installation remains in a safe and serviceable condition.

A periodic inspection checks the condition of an existing electrical installation against BS 7671, the UK Standard for the safety of electrical installations. A periodic inspection should:

  • Discover if electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
  • Identify potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards
  • Find any defective electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding

How frequently should an electrical installation be inspected?
For rented accommodation, the maximum period recommended between the initial inspection (when the installation was first put into service) and the first periodic inspection and test is five years.

Periods between subsequent inspections will depend on the condition of the installation at the time of the preceding inspection, but it is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every five years or at the end of a tenancy, whichever comes first.

Where a change of tenancy occurs after a short period (for example less than six months) a full periodic inspection and test may not always be needed. In such cases, the landlord or their representative should always carry out a visual check to confirm that the property is safe to re-let.

What about Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)?
The Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Regulations 2006 and the Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Wales) Regulations 2006 require that every electrical installation in an HMO is inspected and tested at least every five years by a suitably qualified person, who should provide a certificate giving the results of the inspection.
