Whether a domestic, industrial or commercial client there are many benefits to using a NICEIC contractor such as Retroflo, not least because contractors seeking approval undergo approval a stringent examination of a representative sample of their work, premises, documentation, equipment, and staff. Once contractors become registered with NICEIC, they are re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure high standards are maintained.
The main benefits of using a contractor registered by NICEIC include:
Safety and competence
Electricians registered by NICEIC are assessed on a regular basis to ensure that they are competent and capable of meeting the relevant technical and safety standards, codes of practice and rules of the Schemes they are registered to.
Compliance with building regulations
Contractors registered to NICEIC Building Regulations Schemes are authorised to self-certify their work without hindrance from Local Authority Building Control. This saves you both time and money when undertaking work that requires notification under the Building Regulations.
The Platinum Promise covers work undertaken by contractors registered by NICEIC. The Platinum Promise provides protection to any entity using a NICEIC registered contractor. In the event that a contractor undertakes work that is found not to comply with the required regulations or standards, the Platinum Promise will help to put this work right. In the first instance the original contractor will be instructed to undertake any remedial work. If this this not possible the Platinum Promise will pay for remedial work to be undertaken by an alternative contractor up to the value of £25,000 per installation. The Platinum Promise is valid for a period of six years from the date of completion of the original work. NICEIC is concerned solely with the safety and technical standard of the work carried out by NICEIC registered contractors.
