Depending on where you live in the UK, there are a number of scheme operators for registered electricians. These are:
England and Wales: NICEIC, Elecsa, NAPIT, Blue Flame Certification and Stroma Certification.
Scotland: SELECT, NICEIC, NAPIT
Northern Ireland: NICEIC, ECA, NAPIT
We always recommend using a registered electrician for electrical work in the home. This gives you the peace of mind that they work to the British safety Standard BS7671, that their work is regularly assessed and that they are insured. It is also a legal requirement for certain types of electrical work.
If you cannot find the details and the electrician is claiming to be registered with a particular scheme, you should report them to the scheme operator in question so that they can take action. If your electrician is not registered, it is also worth contacting Trading Standards to register your complaint about their work.
