Launch of the Electrical Safety Register listing accredited electricians for residential & commercial properties

I have long supported the ECA and it's campaign for higher standards in the private rented sector. Electrical safety certificates should be mandatory as should Residual Consumer Devices and mains wired smoke detectors.

This latest initiative, the Electrical Safety Register provides a searchable register to help find a registered electrician. It is a joint venture between the Electrical Safety Council (ESC) and Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA) that features both domestic and commercial contractors registered under the NICEIC, ELECSA and ECA certification schemes.

Over 33,000 contractors are registered with these schemes, covering the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland. All of the contractors have been assessed against rigorous technical standards, offering protection to both householders and commercial customers.
