Boys I'm having my first NICEIC assesment in a couple of weeks (domestic work only). I need a heads up on what to expect and what they will expect me to supply ie H&S statement etc, I've heard they will want to know about the complaints procedure, whats that about? can you please give me what help you can

i would aslo like some info about joining the NICEIC. EddieB, how long have you been working on your own for? What jobs are you using for your assessment? Seems weird that you have to be registered with these people to do the work, so how can you do a job for them to see when youre not registered?

Can you use work done on your own house as an example for your assessment?

I'm looking at registering so i can sign off my own work, but have only just come through my apprenticeship so this all seems very new, and quite a big step.

So they are fine with assessing a completed job then? They dont come and assess the job as its in progress?

How do they know that you did the job yourself?!!

Hi

They will want to see you do an inspection and test, Health and Safety Policy, Complaints Procedure ie what steps you would take to avoid complaints and what actions you would take in receipt of a complaint ie Stage 1 Log complaint Stage 2 Contact customer and discuss the problem Stage 3 Return to property. Basically think what you would expect if you lodged a complaint with a sparky. Public liability insurance 2 million mark and a register of all your customers to date.

May be more but cant remember hope others can help

Good luck

Chris

Im with Elecsa and have never lost a job through not being with the NIC.

Even commercial jobs, which are well documented on these forums.

But, if you feel more at ease then go for it.

It wont do you any harm!

what are these?!And I've never seen a copy of EAWR in my life.

Someone said 'a register of your customers to date' How could i have a customer base if I've not been registered before, therefore not being able to sign off my work.
