Hi,
looking for some advise please.

Ive applied for NICEIC registration and I’m awaiting my assessment, my problem is that I’ve been advise by the NICEIC that the assessor will need to see 3 jobs on the visit and the certification needs to be in my company name. As any domestic work needs to be notified to building control, I’ve contacted the council and they keep telling me that their not electricians and I would need to get an registered electrical contractor to sign of the work. As an NICEIC company your not supposed to sign off other people’s work and that doesn’t help me any way and if I can’t notify the work my self what should I do?

Is it exceptable to get my previous company who are NICEIC registered to notify the work in their name and for me to do a certificate in my name? Will the NICEIC except this?

Ive been going round in circles for the past three days and getting no where, so any advise would be greatly received.

Im a qualified electrician with 32 years experience and until recently I was a director of a company who where NICEIC registered for over 20 years.

Thanks in advance.

You can get a napit person to cert it for you as they can do someone elses work, nic contractors can't

The NICEIC will be able to tell you what you need to do, but you should speak to someone and explain your situation. If registering as a Domestic Installer, they usually accept a job done at your house. As you get 30 days to notify the job, you can do so when your application is approved, via the NICEIC portal.

Unfortunately the NICEIC wont except this as the Company would issue a certificate in their name not mine. its ridiculous that I can’t notify part P work with out being registered but I can be registered with out notified work in my name!!

I spoke to NICEIC technical today and they didnt offer the 30 days to notify the work. I thought that was only the case if you are already registered?

Building control give you 30 days to notify through your Scheme. So you do a notifiable job as soon as you know when your assessment will be. You get assessed, passed and given access to the NICEIC building control portal, from which you then notify the job.

Will the assessor not check if the work has been notified on my assessment visit?

This is how it works. It has been referred to in several other threads. It's the only way it CAN work, otherwise you would be stuck in a Catch 22 situation.
