NAPIT’s Codebreaker Guide is a Finalist for The Electrical Industry Awards 2018!

CODEBREAKERS COVERNAPIT are thrilled to announce that their industry leading Codebreakers publication has been selected as a finalist for this year’s Electrical Industry Awards. The Codebreakers guide is competing in the ‘Trade Tool of the Year’ category and is the only publication to be up for nomination in the Awards.

In 2017, NAPIT created the original, industry first Codebreakers guide to assist inspectors with coding observations found during Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs). Since the publication of Codebreakers, NAPIT have received an overwhelmingly positive response to the guide as it is the first of its kind and provides clear and concise guidance on how to code EICR observations.

NAPIT’s Chief Technical Officer, Frank Bertie, and NAPIT’s Technical Development Engineer, Richard Townsend recognised a lack of guidance and information within this area of the industry, which led to them creating not only the Codebreakers guide, but also their interactive Codebreakers presentations.

NAPIT’s Chief Executive, Michael Andrews said “We are incredibly proud that our Codebreakers publication has been recognised for the Electrical Industry Awards ‘Trade Tool of the Year’ category. Prior to the release of Codebreakers, the information regarding how to code EICR observations was limited at best. We recognised that this could lead to mistakes and danger within the industry, which is something we are continuously striving to prevent. To have our Codebreakers publication selected as a finalist and to be the only publication competing in the Electrical Industry Awards is a real mile stone, and we are delighted.’


NAPIT’s Codebreakers guide has been updated to align with BS 7671:2018 and is available to pre-order on
