Electrical contractors register with the organisation to become approved contractors, meeting the NICEIC's specification of training. If work undertaken by the approved contractor is not up-to-standard, the NICEIC will correct it if necessary. Work is checked by 54 local Area Engineers. Many local authorities only give work to NICEIC-approved electricians.
Most electrical items in domestic wiring are controlled from the consumer unit with its residual-current device (RCD), which since 2001 has to be installed. Homes are wired in a ring circuit.

- Ensure work is carried out to the current edition of BS 7671; the IET Wiring Regulations
