    Niceic technical help

    Talked to the tech line the other day hoping to confirm what I already knew, but with a definite answer regarding issues on EICR, on a property 40+ years old. Not a great experience I must say, putting all the onus back on me, What do you think you should do? At the end I gave a very...

I've got another electrician willing to finish the job; NICEIC have said they can't help with my complaint if that's the case but if the original...

    Niceic certification

    DB not connected directly to the main supply. The confusing bit, characteristics at this DB, is this still related to the Distribution circuit. You can actually read it both ways, I’ve been entering the Distribution circuit but now have my doubts.

All seems pretty simple, CU needs an upgrade and some basic tidying of fixtures etc. Only 3 circuits so I'm not overly bothered about doing another EICR...
