Who must obtain the electrical certificate of compliance?

Last Updated On May 07, 2020

The electrical certificate of compliance in terms of the relevant Electrical Installation Regulations, 1992, framed under Act no 6 of 1983, as extended by Act no. 85 of 1993 is also commonly referred to the “COC”. The contract of sale will typically stipulate that the seller has to obtain the COC at his cost. If the contract doesn’t stipulate this, and the purchaser’s bank insists on a COC, then the purchaser will have to bare the costs.
