As a member of an approved trade body; The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installations Contracting (NICEIC) we are Part P registered – as defined by Part P of The Building Regulations – and we are annually assessed to enable us to self-certify our work as compliant with BS7671, (the electrical wiring regulations). In addition the NICEIC provides their Platinum Promise warranty for our work, and ensures we have all the necessary on-going qualifications, skills, training and insurance.
As an NICEIC Domestic Installer, we undertake work in domestic premises, and as an NICEIC Approved Contractor we also undertake work in commercial premises.
Peak Electrics is happy to be a member of Hampshire Trading Standards’ ‘Buy With Confidence’ scheme, which assures the quality and security of the service the company provides. We are also a member of the government Trustmark scheme, which guarantees our trustworthiness and high standards.
In January 2012, Peak Electrics became a member of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), and the Renewable Energy Assurance Scheme (REAL) but after a year decided not to continue with these schemes due to the extraordinary amount of questionable bureaucracy involved – the costs of which pass on to the customer!

Since January 2005 electrical work in domestic locations has been covered by Part P of The Building Regulations 2000. This was introduced in order to apply a level of safety to the domestic sector which had been hitherto un-regulated – sometimes with tragic consequences.
In essence the rules now require all but the most basic electrical work to be undertaken by a qualified person, be notified to the local Building Control Department, have an appropriate certificate issued to confirm compliance with the regulations, and a record of tests and measurements taken. (The rules also require that new installations have diagrams, labels, maps and/or other information as necessary to make the system unambiguous.)
This requires an electrician with membership of a Part P self-certification scheme (such as the NICEIC Domestic Installer scheme – of which we are a member).
