Hi, never worked domestic.

We need an inspection / certification on a business with a dwelling above.
Looking on the NICEIC website, they have approved contractors, presumably they are the superhero’s that can carry this out?

Try to go with local companies where you can get a word of mouth recommendation from a neighbour for example.

Just because they are listed on NICEIC, doesn't mean they are spotless.

There are a number of competent person schemes that can provide this service through their members. They are Stroma, Napit, BSI, Elecsa and are all equivalent to NIC who seem to have the market share of public awareness. But anyone from these schemes who has the C&G 2391 for inspection and testing is perfectly capable of doing an EICR on the property you mention. I mention this just to raise public awareness that there is more schemes apart from the one you mentioned who can offer the same service.

Thanks, I appreciate that we can use a different scheme. But the insurance specifies NICEIC and it’s not worth the hassle of using someone else.
Thanks.
 
There is no requirement to be part of any scheme nor to hold a so called testing qualification.

NAPIT and the others should have stomped on this when Part Pee came out. It's restriction of trade and probably not legal in these days of free markets.

Because that’s


The insurance company specifies it.
Thanks, thought as much.
Doesn't the Insurance company realize, that there are other Competent Persons Schemes that offer the same credentials, NAPIT, STROMA etc, as someone else commented, just because the tester is a member of the NICEIC, doesn't make them an Electrical expert, far from it in some cases.

Probably doesn't have a clue, so in my opinion it's far easier for the OP to look up NICEIC registered contractors on their site, have 2 or 3 give a quote and move on.

Now if it was an electrician asking the question after being turned down, then of course arguing the point would be worth while.
