2 min read


If you’re lost in the world of wires, technical jargon and qualifications, let PNP Electrical Services help.

When choosing an electrician in Wigan, Manchester or Liverpool, some may boast NICEIC certification – but what does this really mean?

What is NICEIC?

NICEIC stands for National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting. It is a voluntary regulatory body that was founded in 1956 and has provided assessments for electrical contractors ever since.

They evaluate the competency of domestic and commercial electricians – ensuring work is completed safely and to the highest industry standards.

How do NICEIC test contractors?

Whether it be electricians in Wigan or electricians in Manchester or Liverpool, they must all undergo a stringent assessment.

For this, a representative sample of their work, premises, documentation and equipment will be required and they will need to meet NICEIC’s high standards in order to achieve a place on the register.

The electricians will then be regularly assessed to ensure standards remain high.

Do electricians need NICEIC registration?

It’s not a legal requirement for electricians to be NICEIC registered but it’s beneficial – both for electrical contractors and customers. Contractors who supply registered electricians in Manchester, Liverpool and Wigan will be more appealing for customers who are looking for trustworthy electricians to come out to their property and complete work safely and efficiently.

How will you know if electricians are NICEIC registered?

Most electricians will display the fact they’re NICEIC registered on their website, van or business card, for everyone to see. But feel free to ask them for proof of certification.
