the electrical trade there are several associations that
have gained the authorisation to be able to monitor qualified
electricians and grant them Part P registration. "Part
P" is the government legislation put in place to ensure
domestic electrical work is carried out by competent persons.
and the NICEIC are two such organisations that monitor
Part P qualified electricians
When I first began trading as a self employed electrician in the UK (May 2004), the NICEIC required self employed electricians to have traded for more than one year to be NICEIC registered. This combined with the fact that I wanted to get more involved with electrical inspections made my decision to join NAPIT an easy one.

main differences between the two organisations
are as follows:
The NICEIC only requires one "Qualified Supervisor" per
company to have professional inspectors qualifications, provided that all of the companies work is undertaken in the same area (eg Bristol).
This means that if you an employ an NICEIC company to do your electrical work, the person doing the work, may not be professionally qualified.
NAPIT requires all electricians within the electrical
workforce of a company, to have professional inspectors
The NICEIC invests more money in advertising, than NAPIT.
The cost of joining NAPIT, is cheaper than membership
with the NICEIC.
who employ a NAPIT registered electrician can be assured
their electrician has the same skills, qualifications
and working procedures required to be a member of the
NICEIC or any other Part P monitoring organisation.
