Did you know that with every property, that runs any kind of electricity, you need to have an Electrical Certificate of Compliance. Whether you are buying, selling or renting out your Durban property, you are required to be compliant with the Occupational Health and Safety Act. In order to get an electrical certificate of compliance, or ECOC, you need an electrician that is wireman licensed, and here at Durban Electrician, our electricians ARE wireman licensed and fully equipped to issue your certificate of electrical compliance. 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.
