Electrical Certificates of Compliance

There are many reasons you may need an Electrical Certificate of Compliance in Cape Town. A COC wiring certificate is required every time you buy or sell a property and may also be requested by your insurance companies if you need to make a claim due to an electrical fault.

A Cape Town C.O.C  is a fairly straight forward document to obtain but needs to be carried out and completed by a qualified and ECB authorised electrician.

What is an Electrical Certificate of Compliance (C.O.C)?

A Certificate of Electrical Compliance is a document stating that the electrical system on your property and all the wiring, plug sockets, switches and light fittings conform to government & ECB standards.

You need to obtain an updated new Electrical COC every time major electrical work is carried out on your property and this is a service that is normally performed by the electrician that undertakes the work.

An Electrical certificate of Compliance is an important document and should be kept in a safe place so that you can produce it if required to do so by law. A copy should also be filed with the ECB and kept on record.

ECOC’s expire after 3 years so its important to keep yours up to date, A regular inspection also allows you to be aware of any repair work required or potentially dangerous factors associated with your electrical usage.

You do not normally need a COC for changing lights, plugs or sockets, but we can issue you one to confirm that the electrical work is guaranteed.

The Electrical Compliance Certificate (ECoC) Process

  • If your electrical installation is problem free and compliant, you will only be charged for the Electrical Certificate of Compliance.
  • If there are electrical repairs required we will quote you on the necessary repairs.
  • Only upon your signed acceptance of our electrical quote, will we do the repairs.
  • Once we have received the acceptance we will schedule the repairs.
  • One of our electrical teams will complete the repairs.
  • Once the repairs are complete we will issue the Electrical Compliance Certificate at no additional cost.
