As a result of the changes to legislation in 1992, the Department of Labour introduced sweeping internal management changes, which resulted in the demise of their Inspectorate to a very large extent.

Simultaneously, the Municipal authorities downgraded their Inspectorate, which left the Electrical Contracting Industry, to regulate itself, based on the principals incorporated in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act No 85 of 1993.

It was soon discovered that industry was unable to regulate its activities satisfactorily.

As a result of this, an initiative was implemented whereby the Department of Labour, established the criteria within which Approved Inspection Authorities could investigate incidents and complaints on their behalf.

GEIA has been operating as an Approved Inspection Authority within the framework of the Regulations since 1999. As with many Government Departments, service delivery by the Department of Labour has been burdened with the lack of adequate resources in the enforcement of Regulations. This has left the general public at the mercy of many unscrupulous electrical contractors.

The only effective avenue for the public to deal with invalid Certificates of Compliance obtained during the property sale process is by enforcing their civil rights in terms of the Property Sale Contract.

GEIA is currently preparing for the implementation of an operational standard through SANAS (South African National Accreditation System), as a private Electrical Inspection Body.
