With any electrical installation, if done by a professional electrical installations company, you are going to need an Electrical Certificate of Compliance or ECOC to state that the electrical system on your premises is up to scratch and comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. This is a necessary process and will ensure your safety as well as the electrical integrity of your property. In order to obtain an ECOC, you will need a professional electrician or electrical technician who is wireman licensed and qualified to issue such a certificate of electrical compliance. Here at Property COC, all of our technicians are fully qualified and wireman licensed. So ECOC? No problem. Electrical Certificate of Compliance? Since May 2009 it has become compulsory for home-owners to have a valid Electrical Certificate of Compliance (ECOC).  This document verifies that the electrical work and installations that have been completed on a property are up to the  regulations required by the South African National Standards and are safe. Why is an electrical certificate so important for a home-owner? Aside from the fact that the certificate is proof that the electrical installation is safe, the law requires a home-owner to be in  possession of an ECOC, as do home insurance companies. If a property incurs any damage as a result of an electrical fault,  the insurance company will require the home-owner to provide them with a valid electrical certificate. Failure to produce the  document could result in the insurance company repudiating the claim. It is the responsibility of the home-owner to check whether the electrician doing any electrical installation on their property is  registered with the relevant authorities and has a wireman’s license or is working under the direct supervision of an electrician  with a wireman’s license. If they do not have the necessary qualifications, they will be unable to provide an electrical  compliance certificate on the work that they do. As a rule of thumb, it is good maintenance practice to have the property re-inspected for wear and tear every two years,  regardless of whether the owner is intending to sell the property or not. This will ensure that the wiring in the home remains safe  during the period the home-owner occupies the residence. In the instance where the property is rented out, the owner is required to possess a valid ECOC for the electrical installation in  that property and provide the tenant with a copy for their records. No property may be rented out without the landlord having a  valid compliance certificate and rental agents are required to see the ECOC before they can assist with finding a tenant for the  property.
