Certsure has announced its plans to retire the ELECSA brand from all of its schemes, transferring customers to the NICEIC brand from 26 April 2021, with the transition to be completed by November 2022.

Certsure has described this shift as “a pivotal move for the organisation as we seek to strengthen our position as the leading certification body for the building services industry”.

Kevan Parker, Managing Director of Certsure said: “Today is the start of a process of working with our ELECSA customers to move them seamlessly to the NICEIC brand. Historically we have operated the two brands both wedded to our core values of delivering technical excellence and raising standards.

“However, our assessment processes and the assessors who deliver them are the same. So too is the customer service and technical helpline teams that work behind the scenes. In addition, we know that verifiers and consumers have 13 times greater awareness of the NICEIC brand compared to all other electrical certification bodies and thus we want to focus our resources and attention on just one brand.”

Certsure has set up a frequently answered questions page on its website to help customers understand and stay informed about the transition.
