Competent Persons Scheme 

The NICEIC Competent Persons Scheme offers a complete solution to multi-disciplinary contractors such as general builders, who in a single job undertake installations covered by several different Building Regulations in domestic and non-domestic premises.

Once you have met all the requirements, your business will be registered, and can self-certify the work carried out without the need to inform your local Building Control Officer. NICEIC will issue a certificate to the customer and advise the relevant local authority that work has taken place.
