ECOC Inspection – Electrician in Capetown
Electrical Compliance Safety Certificates Across Cape Town
In this section, we’ll provide a basic overview of the necessity of having a Cape Town approved Electrical Compliance Certificate for your home or property.
One of our company’s services is to provide an ECOC that proves your Electrical Installation meets South African Standards. A Certificate of Electrical Compliance is necessary in Cape Town to prove the property’s Electrical Installation is Safe.
If there is an electrical fault and your property is damaged, then insurance companies will request a valid electrical certificate. Without an ECOC, insurance companies may refuse your claim.
Owing to new changes in the law, buyers of new property should have a new compliance certificate drawn up. It is generally considered advisable that you have your property inspected every two years, whether or not you are intending to sell the property. This ensures that your electrical installation is safe during your ownership of the property. If you are renting out your property, it is necessary to possess a valid Landlord Certificate and also to provide a copy of the certificate to the tenant.
Properties should not be rented out unless the landlord has a valid compliance certificate. Rental agents are also required to view the ECOC before they may help with securing a tenant.
