When an electrician undertakes electrical work in a home, commercial, industrial or gas and oil location they must provide a Certificate of Compliance (CoC) as proof that the work meets safety standards. The CoC will include the scope of the work and testing completed.
The certificate is an important part of the whole process and it is the legal requirement South African law. It protects the consumer from potential electric shock risks and fire hazards and provides peace of mind for those who have had their installation or alteration done in line with regulations.
A good electrical contractor will issue the customer with a COC before they connect the appliance or system to the main power source, this ensures that the work is carried out in accordance with the Electricity Safety Act and Regulations. It is also a requirement under the Electrical Safety Regulations that this form be completed and handed to the customer and the electricity distributor as soon as possible after the work has been completed.
