Electrical Contractors' Association


ECA is the UK’s leading trade association that represents and supports the interests of businesses and organisations involved in electrotechnical and engineering services design, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and monitoring across the United Kingdom (excluding Scotland).

ECA has been a driving force in the industry since its formation in 1901. Today, many organisations that are involved in improving industry standards and embracing positive change do so as a direct result of ECA involvement or alternatively engage with the ECA on an ongoing basis.

ECA offers membership to businesses across the electrotechnical and engineering services industry achieving the highest industry standards and certifications. There are a series of routes to ECA membership, including: alternative power supplies, audio visual, building controls, commercial installations, structured data cabling, domestic electrical, earthing, fire and security, high voltage and temporary installations.

We also offer a number of associate schemes for other industry stakeholders in our efforts to improve standards, professionalism and commercial opportunity. Our associate offering is open to the entire supply chain, including clients, specifiers, trainers, manufacturers and distributors.
