What are the Different Types of Electrical c.o.c?
Until there comes a time when you actually need an Electrical Certificate of Compliance Johannesburg, most people don’t even know what they are or why they need one, let alone what type they need and who they can trust to do the job properly. Fortunately, its not a complicated process, and there are only 2 main types of Certification, the cost of which will vary depending on whether you have a residential, commercial or industrial requirement.
Electrical Certificate of Compliance (c.o.c)
This certification will check all the electrical wiring, lights, earth, plug points and power distribution boards within your property as well as any lighting, sockets or cabling on the exterior. Checking if your electrical system meets current regulations is important if you are thinking about selling your home. A standard COC is valid for 2 years.
