My Local Electrician has been contacted by a number of online electricians groups regarding their concerns with the NICEIC's Wall of Shame. We all know that their wall of shame is something we, as professional electricians, give the thumbs up to. We also agree that the NICEIC should be prosecuting those who are using the NICEIC logo without actually being registered with them.
The director of a building firm has been fined for falsely claiming to be NICEIC registered.
Dorset based James Hewitson, a director of Poole Bay Building Construction Ltd, pleaded guilty to offences under the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations Act 2008.
He was misusing the NICEIC logo on two vehicles and on the company's website.
