SELECT is the trade association for the electrical contracting industry in Scotland.

With its foundation in 1900 as The Electrical Contractors' Association of Scotland, SELECT became the first trade association in the world to serve the electrical industry. Leaving aside the ancient trades, that makes SELECT amongst the oldest of the "modern" trade associations.

Today, there are over 1150 Members of SELECT each one working to our stringent membership criteria.

SELECT Members have capability across a wide range of design, manufacturing, testing and commissioning skills and each is accredited to one or more of ten technical disciplines.

SELECT Member companies account for 90% of all electrical installation work carried out in Scotland, have a collective turnover of £1 billion and provide employment for 15,000.

SELECT represents the industry

As the authoritative trade association for the electrotechnical industry, SELECT helps to shape the market environment. By representing the industry to government, SELECT influences legislation to create industry conditions which enable Member firms to both provide a quality service to their clients and operate profitably at the same time.

The representative function involves the influencing of local and central Government (including the European Commission); involvement in setting and monitoring industry standards (such as BS7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations) committees); negotiation in industrial relations and in the contractual, technical and regulatory fields.
