Why use a SELECT Member?

SELECT ensures that work carried out by our Member companies is of the highest quality, employs the best of modern technology and, above all, is safe. 

Committed to safe installation 

Membership of SELECT gives you confidence that you are dealing with a quality contractor backed by a Code of Practice, Contract Completion Guarantee and Customer Complaints Service. 

Every SELECT Member undergoes a rigorous technical assessment on a regular basis. This assessment is conducted by SELECT's own team of UKAS accredited Technical Advisers who have many years of experience in the electrical industry.  

This ensures the work a SELECT Member carries out for you is safe and installed to recognised industry standards and practices.

SELECT Members work across a wide range of disciplines and can carry out most types of modern electrical work. These include: 

  • Commercial and domestic wiring installations 
  • Fire detection and fire alarm systems 
  • Emergency lighting 
  • Control panels and building control systems 
  • Work in hazardous areas 
  • Security systems 
  • Voice and data systems 
  • In-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment (PAT testing). 

Up to date with developments 

Thanks to our insider knowledge, SELECT Members are regularly kept updated on technical developments, changes to regulations and standards, health and safety best practice, environmental matters and sustainable technologies. 

Follows rules and regulations 

All work carried out by SELECT Members is required to comply with relevant British and European Standards, the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations and other relevant regulations, including health and safety legislation. 

Can easily be identified 

Where required, SELECT Members ensure that their operatives carry an appropriate SJIB Grade (ECS) Card - the only ID and competence card scheme for electrotechnical operatives in the UK. This card enables operatives to confirm their identity, competence and qualification levels.

Guarantees that work will be completed 

If you accept a quote and conditions of trading from a SELECT Member, the work is covered by SELECT's Contract Completion Guarantee. If any work undertaken by a SELECT Member cannot be completed because of that Member's insolvency then SELECT will pay for the completion of that work by another Member, subject to terms and conditions.
