About us

Through the NICEIC brand we assess, certify and educate – continually raising standards for a growing
number of energy-related sectors.

Trade professionals look to us for certification
and technical leadership, and value the credibility our name gives theirs.

Working alongside government and industry, we prioritise safety and help build public trust in trade professions – and we never compromise on that trust.

How it started

Certsure provides industry-leading certification schemes and support to the building services sector. These services are delivered through the NICEIC brand.

Certsure was created in 2013 through a partnership between the charity, Electrical Safety First (ESF) and the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA).

Certsure is a limited liability partnership (LLP). All surplus income generated by Certsure is channelled back into these two partners to promote electrical safety and support electrical contractors.


The NICEIC brand is owned and managed by Certsure LLP.

For almost 70 years, NICEIC has been the UK’s largest certification body for electrical businesses with over 40,000 currently certified with us. As the industry leader, we drive the highest standards of competence and safety. NICEIC-certified businesses demonstrate these standards through rigorous assessments and continuing professional development. Once certified, we provide ongoing advice and support, and list them on our online ‘Find a trusted NICEIC tradesperson’ tool. We help build public trust in trade professionals – and we never compromise on that trust.
