ECOC - Electrical Certificate of Compliance

Legislation stipulates that every homeowner should be in possession of a valid Electrical Certificate of Compliance (ECOC) when selling their home.

The ECOC verifies that all electrical work and electrical installations are up to the standard regulations required by the SANC (South African National Standards.)

An ECOC is valid for 2 years. This covers DB Boards, wiring, earthing, socket outlets, light switches, isolators for fixed appliances and bonding of metal components (including antennae and satellite dishes.)

Electrical Fence CoC

If you have installed electric fences you will require an Electric Fence System Compliance Certificate.

The Electrical Machinery Regulations of 2011 issued under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 places an obligation on the user of an electric fence to have an Electric Fence System CoC. However if does not apply if the system was installed before 1 October 2012.

This CoC is also valid for 2 years and must be certified by an approved installer.

Water Installation CoC

A February 2011 water bylaw (area specific to Cape Town) stipulates that a Water Installation Certificate must be provided to the municipality by sellers before transfer.

Plumbing CoC (PIRB COC)

It is a legal requirement for a PIRB COC to be issued when plumbing work is done on a geyser, a solar water heater or a heat pump.

This requirement was introduced through the Water Services Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the National Building Regulations. It was ultimately published in the South African National Standards (SANS) 10106, SANS 1352, SANS 10252-1 and SANS 10254.

Gas CoC

On 1 October 2009, Regulation 17 (3) of the Pressure Equipment Regulations (OHS ACT of 1993) came into effect, which states that if a liquid gas appliance has been installed on the property, a Gas Certificate of Conformity is to be issued when there is a change of ownership.

A Gas CoC is valid for 5 years, and must be issued by an authorised person registered with LPGAS

Beetle Infestation Clearance Certificate

In coastal areas this certificate is a written condition in the sales agreement.

If the area in which the property being sold is known to be infested with beetles or woodborers then this certificate will be required.
