Electrical Contractors' Association

The Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) is the UK’s leading trade association representing the interests of contractors who design, install, inspect, test and maintain electrical and electronic equipment and services.

The ECA has three clear aims:

1. To provide a comprehensive, first-class range of tools and expert support services to its 3,000+ Registered Members. Members range from local contractors to national building services organisations and collectively have an annual turnover of more than £5 billion, employ over 30,000 operatives and support 8,000 apprentices in craft training.

2. To work with regulatory bodies, government and opinion formers to build an efficient and sustainable industry, based on high standards of training and practice. Through representation and lobbying, the ECA actively leads on key issues including safety, training, qualification and technological development.

3. To form strategic relationships with those who specify electrical work to enhance the profile and promote the use of Registered Members of all sizes, improving their profit potential.
