About us

We are the UK largest voluntary register of electrical businesses. 

We assess over 36,000 businesses to ensure that the installation work they undertake meets the standards expected to keep us all safe.
 
But we are so much more than that we:
 
We also provide industry leading training and consulting services for the building and construction sectors.
 
And we have an online shop that sells selected products to support the building services industry.  
 
We also deliver an online certification and reporting system that allows our customers to notify the work that they undertake.
 
The importance of certification and third-party assessment
 
Our role is to check compliance and conformity against strict standards and regulations. 
 
We do this via testing, verification and assessment of work. 
 
We also verify that the correct equipment is used and correctly calibrated to make sure that work is measured and recorded accurately.
 
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 undertake work that they are contracted to complete. 

Businesses on our registers have chosen to undertake an assessment looking at their policies, procedures and the technical competency of their work. 
 
Once satisfied, we certify the business to confirm that they meet 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.
