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.</p> <p>So whilst the NICEIC wall of shame is certainly a good thing, If you feel that the NICEIC should be identifying the business concerned in a better way, sign the form below and we can forward this to the NICEIC in the hope they will respond and address the issue we have raised. </p> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-mt-pst-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>One group of like minded professional electricians, My Electricians ToolBox, have sent us the following letter:</p> <p><em>Dear Certsure</em></p> <p><em>Regarding your published, “wall of shame.” </em></p> <p><em><a href="https://www.niceic.com/find-a-contractor/wall-of-shame" rel="nofollow noopener" role="link" tabindex="-1" target="_blank">https://www.niceic.com/find-a-contractor/wall-of-shame</a> </em></p> <p><em>Whilst this is undoubtedly a good idea, there is an issue with one of the entries on this list. </em></p> <p><em>“Your Local Electrician (Stafford),” is obviously a specific business. </em></p> <p><em>However, without further specific identification, this entry is causing problems for a number of Certsure paid-up members, and members of other competent persons schemes. </em></p> <p><em>“Your Local Electrician,” is a byline or tagline, used in marketing by members of, “My Electrician’s Toolbox.” </em></p> <p><em>It is used on branded work wear, in magazine advertisements, on vans, and on stationery, and in lots of other ways. </em></p> <p><em>Without much more specific identification, electricians using this tagline are being incorrectly identified as being unregistered contractors. </em></p> <p><em>Please correct this issue, either by specifically identifying the business and/or individual concerned, or by removing the entry to eliminate confusion. </em></p> <p><em>Yours, the undersigned,</em></p> <p><script src="//www.mylocalelectrician.uk/webform/niceic_wall_of_shame_petition/share.js"></script></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/news-category/niceic-logo" hreflang="en">niceic logo</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/news-category/niceic-wall-shame" hreflang="en">niceic wall of shame</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/news-category/niceic-rogue-traders-0" hreflang="en">niceic rogue traders</a></div> </div> Mon, 08 Nov 2021 19:53:33 +0000 gazza 8583 at https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk Another contractor fined for misuse of the NICEIC logo https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk/news/another-contractor-fined-misuse-niceic-logo <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Another contractor fined for misuse of the NICEIC logo</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">gazza</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 14/04/2014</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="images-container clearfix"> <div class="image-preview clearfix"> <div class="image-wrapper clearfix"> <div class="field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/latest_mle_news_25.png?itok=dJNPxYQi" width="750" height="499" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-large" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The director of a building firm has been fined for falsely claiming to be NICEIC registered.<br /> 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.<br /> He was misusing the NICEIC logo on two vehicles and on the company's website.<br /> The company was fined £1000 and ordered to pay £500 costs and a victim surcharge of £100. James Hewitson was fined £300 and ordered to pay £124 costs and a £30 victim surcharge. Charges were dropped against the company's other director, Mark Hewitson<br /> The action was taken by Dorset Trading Standards following information passed on to them by NICEIC.<br /> Richard Herringshaw, Principal Trading Standards Officer, commented: "In this instance we gave the company and its directors every chance to remove the logo but they chose to ignore advice .In such circumstances we had no alternative but to prosecute the company and its director.”<br /> It is the second recent prosecution for misuse of the NICEIC logo. In January this year London based David Taylor, who trades under the name of DT Property Maintenance and Electrical Contractors, was found guilty of leaving jobs unfinished and homes unfit for human habitation whilst claiming to be NICEIC registered.<br /> NICEIC’s CEO Emma Clancy said: “We take misuse of our logo very seriously and we welcome this latest prosecution.<br /> “The NICEIC name is associated with quality and we must protect those contractors who are legitimately registered with us and have the quality of their work assessed on a regular basis.<br /> “We must also send out the message that anyone thinking about misusing our logo will be caught and dealt with appropriately by the courts.”<br /> Contractors caught falsely claiming to be members will be named and shamed on the NICEIC website and their details passed to Trading Standards.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-above field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix"> <div class="field__label">News Categories</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/news-category/niceic-logo" hreflang="en">niceic logo</a></div> </div> </div> Sun, 13 Apr 2014 23:00:00 +0000 gazza 7881 at https://www.mylocalelectrician.uk
