ECA has been a mainstay of electrical industrial standards in the UK since its formation over a century ago.
ECA (originally the Electrical Contractors’ Association) played a particularly important role in the 1920s and 1930s when electric power was first introduced to the majority of homes in the UK. ECA helped to create the National Grid which set the standard at which voltage and frequencies of electricity were supplied to the country.
Today, ECA is headquartered in London and is the main trade association for companies involved in electrotechnical and other technical engineering projects in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. It has over 2,800 members – companies who collectively employ over 100,000 members of staff.
ECA's Code of Fair Trading sets the defined standards in workmanship, costs and payments. This code guarantees to keep electricians on the Local Heroes platform up to date with the relevant skills and qualifications they need to do their job safely and to the highest standard.
