Electric Compliance Certificates can be issued at a starting cost of R550 (2018 rates apply)
Alwyn Geyser a qualified installation electrician performs about 15 tests for COC’s to ensure that the installation is safe. Certificates of compliance will only be issued once the electrical installation comply to all requirements
Some of the tests done are:
- An earth leakage test, this is done by testing all the wall plugs with a earth leakage tester, the earth leakage must then trip. This is a very important test because, it prevents electric shock to humans, animals and possible damage to appliances in and outside your home.
- Prospective Short-Circuit Current (PSCC) Test; If there is a short circuit under the circuit breaker the circuit breaker must be able to handle a certain amount of amps, and the test makes sure that the circuit breaker can handle these amps.
- Z loop impedance test or also known as earth loop impedance test is to make sure that the circuit is disconnected fast enough to prevent overheating and possibly a fire.
