Electrical Safety First has welcomed the recent sale of NQA, the global quality assurance company, to NTS, a provider of testing, inspection and certification services in the USA.

“The sale of the business is part of the Charity’s strategic development, allowing us to invest in and enhance our charitable objectives, while also strengthening our partnership work with Certsure – including raising consumer awareness of Part P and the need to use a registered electrician,” explains Phil Buckle, director general of Electrical Safety First .

“But in addition to supporting our effectiveness through a strengthened financial base, we also consider the transfer of the company as beneficial for the NQA team and the long term future of the company.  NTS are a safe pair of hands which, as the joint venture partner with NQA in the US, have already established a close relationship with the organisation.”
