Certificate of compliance (COC)

Home  /  Certificate of compliance (COC)

Similar to an Electrical Certificate of Compliance (COC), a Plumbing COC is now required when a property is sold or transferred. This is applicable to domestic properties, industrial and commercial properties as well as sectional titles.

 

What is a Plumbing COC?

 

The certificate of compliance is designed so a licensed plumber can self-certify their plumbing work and issue a plumbing COC to the owner, insurance company or municipality. This way the plumber takes ownership for his work which means he can be held accountable should something go

wrong.

 

Why is a Certificate of Compliance is important?

 

The purpose of issuing a Certificate of Compliance is to verify that plumbing installations comply with regulatory requirements.

 

It is the law that any person working on a plumbing installation should either be qualified or work under the supervision of someone who is.

 

When is a Certificate of Compliance issued?

 

A Plumbing COC is issued for most plumbing jobs, including the following:

 

  • Electric and solar water heating system installations, replacements and relocations
  • For plumbing jobs that cost more than R1500 (including labour, materials and VAT)
  • Sanitary Drain installations, renovations or construction below or above ground

 

What information should the Certificate of Compliance include?

 

  • Name and license number of the plumber
  • Physical address where plumbing job took place
  • Date of work completion
  • Details and serial codes of all fixtures and appliances installed
  • Numeric code for every plumbing task category should be circled
  • Licensed plumber signature and date
  • Any additional information should be written in the provided space
