NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services: one year on

September 06, 2018

This week we are celebrating the one year anniversary of the launch of Certsure’s improved NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services. Relaunched in 2017, the new service powered by SME Insurance Services (smei) was developed to provide contractors with high quality, affordable and flexible insurance.

We are thrilled with the response to the new service, with thousands of contractors contacting the NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services team over the last year to arrange their cover or inform us about their forthcoming renewal dates.

Over 2,000 contractors have joined NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services since the relaunch, with over 7,500 in total now using the service – a fantastic achievement in just one year! This positive response has been driven by improvements we made to the quality of the insurance cover and support available, including providing a greater choice for arranging cover. Contractors now have the option of arranging cover online using our easy and convenient website, or over the phone with the assistance of a member of our team.


We’ve revolutionised the offer we provide to NICIEC and ELECSA contractors. Here’s what they’ve had to say about us since the relaunch*:

“Quick, professional and cheap! Now I am secured – with liability, indemnity, legal cost, employer insurance I am fully insured. I can sleep well.”

 “Not only were they very competitive, they were very thorough in meeting our requirements and keeping the legal jargon simple enough to understand.”

“It was very stress free to sort out - the person on the phone was polite, knowledgeable and made everything easy, I will definitely use you again next year.”

“Getting quotes for the correct level of PL Insurance tends to be a bit of a nightmare, but the service provided through NICEIC and ELECSA is tailor made for our industry and extras can be covered without too many problems.”


These customers have benefited from some of the significant enhancements to the cover we have made available since the relaunch –  including higher cover limits, and a range of extra features as standard including £100,000 worth of efficacy cover - which protects you from liability should a product you provide fail to perform its intended function. This year we also introduced a new commercial vehicle solution – with a wider choice of covers available from a range of leading providers that includes Covea, Ageas, Allianz, AXA, Highway (part of Liverpool Victoria), and Zurich – as well as competitive pricing.

Throughout the year, we have taken part in some fantastic events and met many of you – including attending NICEIC and ELECSA Live North and South. More recently, we were invited to take part in NICEIC and ELECSA’s 18th Edition cinema event, presented from the famous Faraday Theatre at The Royal Institution, London by Ore Oduba from the BBC, and broadcast to cinema’s nationwide. The advert we produced was seen by more than 6,000 electricians across the UK and can be viewed here.

If that’s not enough good news, smei, who deliver NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services, has just been announced as a finalist in the prestigious Insurance Times Schemes Broker of the Year 2018 Awards for the fantastic work and success with NICEIC and ELECSA.  

But the work won’t stop here, as we have further developments in the pipeline to introduce even more benefits for contractors.

We are excited for another positive year ahead and would like to thank all of our customers for such a successful first year of NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services, powered by smei.
