AFECO gains NIC EIC accreditation

Building on a the development of our electrical engineering and installation capability and expertise, AFECO has successfully gained accreditation by the NICEIC.

NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting) provides assessment and certification services for contractors involved in electrical work and regulates the training and work of electrical enterprises in the UK. The NICEIC is one of several providers given Government approval to offer Competent Person Schemes to oversee electrical work within the electrical industry.

AFECO has been growing and developing their electrical engineering capability throughout 2017 and becoming an NICEIC approved contractor demonstrates the success of this growth. As part of the approval process, NICEIC assessors reviewed a sample of AFECO’s installation work, the Company’s premises, documentations, equipment and the competence of key supervisory staff. This assessment will be carried out on a regular basis going forward to ensure compliance is maintained. AFECO are now able to offer a complete electrical engineering service, from design through to installation, testing, commissioning and certification.
