The assessment normally lasts about half a day and starts at your place of business. A member of our technical assessment team will meet with the person(s) responsible for the quality of the design and installation of work undertaken.
The purpose of the site assessment is for you to show your work meets the industry standards and regulations for that work. The sites you present must be representative of the work you normally do and been completed within the last 12 months. They should also be within 30 minutes of each other to ensure there is enough time to complete the assessment.
The main considerations of the assessment are that:
The installation selected has been installed in accordance with the relevant standards and regulations
The business can demonstrate the ability to inspect, test and commission the installation in accordance with the required standards. Where appropriate, test instruments must be available
Any other appropriate parts of applicable Regulations, Standards or Directives are being adhered to, eg: water regulations
At the end of the assessment, our engineer will provide you with a completed visit summary and recommendation form which will tell you if you are being recommended for registration. This recommendation will be verified by NICEIC and confirmation will be put in writing to you following the assessment.
