ECA and ESC join forces on new Electrical Safety Register
A joint venture - namely the Electrical Safety Register - has been agreed between the leading organisations in the electrical contracting sector.
The ESC & The Electrical Contractors’ Association have jointly launched the Electrical Safety Register.
The Register is the definitive online resource for anyone looking to find a competent electrical contractor, with the added peace of mind that all contractors listed have been rigorously assessed to ensure they meet the highest technical standards.
Stefan Hay, the head of the Fire and Security Association, stated: "This exciting collaboration is a result of both bodies listening to our stakeholders, customers, members and the Government who all wanted to see a more clearly defined synergy between the key players in the electrical industry. This alliance between the sector Trade Association, the electrical consumer charity and the leading certification body will provide greater clarity to both the consumer and specifier as well as a consolidated voice to Government on common issues."
The new Register, accessed via www.electricalsafetyregister.com, will include both domestic and commercial contractors and brings together the current NICEIC, ELECSA and ECA certification schemes (whose 33,000 registered contractors are responsible for 80% of all domestic electrical work in the UK).
The Register also includes 3,000 ECA members
