ECA and ESC Announce Major Partnership

Release Date: 19/11/2012

In a move which will bring the electrical contracting industry together as never before, the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) and the Electrical Safety Council (ESC) have today announced the creation of the Electrical Safety Register.

Not only that, from April 1st 2013, the NICEIC and ELECSA will be operated by a brand new organisation called Certsure LLP for the good of its customers, giving the industry a stronger voice to government and major stakeholders on relevant issues.

The partnership will bring many benefits to NICEIC and ELECSA registrants. The first is the creation of the Register, which will be the definitive searchable database of NICEIC and ELECSA registered contractors, as well as ECA members, promoted to hundreds of thousands of specifiers by the trade association and the Charity.

Certsure LLP will also make major customer commitments to NICEIC and ELECSA customers. These include:

• Customers are able to display the Electrical Safety Register banner
• NICEIC, ELECSA and ECA customers will be included on the Electrical Safety Register
• Certsure LLP will provide excellent customer service and actively promote its contractors in the marketplace

“With this partnership, the benefits to the consumer and electrician are significant,” comments the ESC. “In particular, for the consumer it means more can be done to raise awareness of the benefits of using registered electricians and we’re delighted that this partnership ensures solid industry support for the charity and its work.”  

“This partnership marks a new beginning for the electrical contracting industry.” explains  the ECA. “There is strength in unity and this alliance unites the key electrical industry players: The sector trade association, the electrical consumer charity and the leading certification body, while providing clarity to the consumer and a consolidated voice to government on common issues.” 

“We will act as the sole registration, certification and assessment body for not only NICEIC’s current customer base, but for those under the ELECSA and ECA brands too,” explains Certsure LLP. “Over time significant cost and commercial benefits will be available to those electrical contractors registered with ELECSA and NICEIC, thanks to this partnership and we will be communicating with all our customers about the joint venture.”
