As an independent third party, we’re trusted to assess contractors to make sure they comply with the highest technical and safety standards and all relevant regulations. 

We take our role very seriously. 

We check contractors’ policies, procedures, and the technical competency of their work. 

We even check that they use the right equipment and calibrate it correctly, so that work is measured and recorded accurately. 

So when you choose an NICEIC registered contractor, you can be confident that they meet the highest possible standards. 

Why is this important?  

We want to make sure that systems are in place to ensure that businesses registered with us - and their employees - are competent to do work that they are contracted to undertake.

Businesses on our registers have chosen to undertake an assessment of their policies and procedures as well as a review of the technical competence of their work.    

Once satisfied, we certify the business to confirm that they meet the relevant standards for the work they undertake.  

We are proud of our role in supporting contractors to be the best they can be.  

Who checks the checkers?  

UKAS (the only National Accreditation Body for the United Kingdom) are appointed by government, to assess and accredit organisations like ours to ensure that we maintain the standards we expect of others. 

And that is why each year many of our rigorous assessment regimes are audited by UKAS, to ensure we meet the highest standards.
