Legislation has been brought in at varying pace across the UK relating to mandatory Electrical Safety Checks (Periodic Inspection and Testing) for this sector.
To support legislation, we offer the NICEIC Rented Sector Scheme*. Open to all NICEIC electrically certified businesses operating in England and Wales** this scheme is designed to verify competence levels and adequate consumer protections relating to Periodic Inspection and Testing in the Rented Sector.
WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?
Successful applicants will be listed on the Registered Competent Persons Electrical Website as being competent to undertake Electrical Safety Checks / Periodic Inspection and Testing in the rented sector in England and Wales.
Being included on this list could provide business opportunities.
Positioned by the English and Welsh Governments as the best route to compliance, this register is signposted to all landlords.
*The Rented Sector Scheme replaces the Private Rented Sector (PRS) Scheme. If your business is already registered on the PRS scheme, you do not need to take any action.
**The Registered Competent Persons Electrical Website does not cover Scotland / Northern Ireland. As such, the NICEIC Rented Sector Scheme is only available in England and Wales. NICEIC Approved Contractors in Scotland are certified to undertake Electrical Safety Checks in the rented sector in Scotland under their NICEIC Approved Contractor certification.
