Compliance Certificate | COC | ECC 

  • Step 1: We conduct a thorough visual inspection of your premises. Unlike other companies, we charge a single inspection fee per premises, not per distribution board. This fee covers a standard-sized property and typically takes about 1 hour. Additional time is billed hourly. If your property is compliant, no additional fees beyond the inspection fee are required. However, if your property is not compliant, we will provide a separate quote for necessary repairs. Upon completion of these repairs, we will issue your compliance certificate. Step 2: To issue the certificate, we require a copy of the utilities account to verify the legal registered address of the property.
  • Free quotes are provided when the job does not require the application of our expertise to diagnose or solve a problem. Paid quotes are necessary when we need to use our professional knowledge and skills to determine the fault and the appropriate solution.

Essential Electrical Terms Explained

  • This document certifies that the electrical installations in the property conform to the legal requirements laid out by the South African National Standards.
  • An ECOC is a legal document that certifies that the electrical installations in a property conform to the safety regulations set out by the South African National Standards. This certificate is required in several situations:
    • Transferring of Property: When a property is sold, it is mandatory for the seller to provide a valid ECOC to the buyer, ensuring that the electrical systems are up to code at the time of transfer.
    • Landlords: Landlords must ensure that rental properties are electrically compliant at all times. Although the law does not mandate a new certificate each time a tenant changes, landlords often choose to obtain a new ECOC to ensure compliance and avoid legal liabilities.
  • The ECOC is valid for two years, meaning that if any new electrical installation or alteration is done during this period, a new certificate must be issued for those changes. However, the existing ECOC for other parts of the installation remains valid until the two-year expiration, unless otherwise specified by local laws or regulations.
  • A common term used to describe when a circuit breaker or safety switch turns off the electrical circuit automatically to prevent harm or damage.
  • A term used to describe a situation where a water heating system / geyser  is not providing hot water, which may be due to electrical issues affecting the heating element or thermostat
  • An electrical supply system panel that divides an electrical power feed into subsidiary circuits while providing a protective fuse or circuit breaker for each circuit.
  • A specific location where a light fixture is installed or can be installed.
  • A switch that controls the flow of electricity to a light fixture, allowing it to be turned on and off.
  • An electrical outlet designed to accommodate one plug for powering a single device.
  • An electrical outlet that accommodates two plugs, allowing two devices to be powered from a single point.
  • The network of wires installed in buildings to provide power and carry electrical current to various points of use.
  • Lighting fixtures mounted on a continuous track containing electrical conductors. This type of lighting is often used for accentuating architectural features or artwork.
  • A heating element is a component of an electrical device designed to generate heat when electrical current passes through it. These elements are commonly found in appliances like electric water heaters, ovens, and toasters.
  • The element works on the principle of Joule heating, where electric current passing through a resistor (the element material) converts electrical energy into heat. This is due to the resistance of the material, which resists the flow of electrical current, causing it to heat up.
  • Elements are typically made from materials that have a high melting point and good electrical resistance, such as nichrome (a nickel-chromium alloy) or kanthal.
  • A device that automatically regulates temperature, or activates a device when the temperature reaches a certain point.
  • Electrical devices that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. They are commonly used in various applications from small appliances to large industrial machines.
  • Electrical systems or circuits that operate at a lower voltage than the main power supply. In South Africa, “low voltage” typically refers to voltages less than 1000 volts.
  • Advanced diagnostic techniques and methods used to identify, locate, and correct malfunctions in complex electrical and electronic systems. This often involves using sophisticated testing equipment and software.
  • Circuit Breakers: Automatic electrical switches designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by excess current from an overload or short circuit. They detect a fault condition and interrupt current flow.
  • Fuses: Safety devices consisting of a strip or wire of fusible metal that melts and interrupts the circuit when too much current flows through it, thereby preventing further damage.

Essential Plumbing Terms Explained

  • A condition where flow is restricted or stopped due to an obstruction in the pipes.
  • A drain pipe that has fallen in or been crushed, impeding flow and causing backups.
  • A pipe that has ruptured due to pressure, corrosion, or freezing, leading to water leakage.
  • Steel pipes coated with zinc that have corroded over time, often leading to leaks or reduced water flow.
  • The main vertical pipe that carries waste and water vapor out of a building.
  • A mechanical device used to clear blockages in plumbing lines with a rotating cutting tool.
  •  A document that verifies the plumbing work complies with regulatory standards.
  • A technique that uses sound frequency or vibrations to detect hidden leaks in a plumbing system.
  • A hot water tank or boiler that has failed and leaked, often due to overpressure or corrosion.
  • A situation where water spills over from a system due to excess flow or blockage.
  • A curved section of drain line that holds water, preventing sewer gases from entering the building.
  • A valve that reduces the water pressure in a plumbing system to a safer level.
  • A device used to prevent dirty water from flowing back into the clean water supply.
  • A pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a sump basin, commonly found in basements
  • A T-shaped fitting used to join three sections of pipe, allowing for a branch connection.
