NICIEC heralds another brick in Wall of Shame

Following the launch of its ‘Wall of Shame’ campaign, NICIEC has welcomed the action taken by Trading Standards against a building firm and its director who falsely claimed to be a member of the electrical accreditation body.

UKSmart Build.com and its director Ertan Gokay, from Enfield, were fined £8,630 and ordered to pay £1,100 in costs following a prosecution by Brent and Harrow Trading Standards.

The firm fraudulently said it was NICEIC-registered and used the logo on its company website, stationary and billboards.

Only approved electrical contractors are allowed to use the logo after having their work verified and checked by NICEIC.
