Who are we?

GEIA was established in 1998 as an Approved Inspection Authority to pioneer a pilot project established by the Department of Labour in conducting inspections and investigations to assist the public in determining the validity of certificates of compliance (COC’s) issued by electrical contractors in accordance with the Electrical Installation Regulations.

GEIA has since utilized experience gained during its 20 years of working with the Regulator to focus its activities on inspection and auditing of electrical installations in Commercial, Industrial plant and factory environments and more recently checking compliance of Solar PV power supply systems.

GEIA conducts electrical audit inspections on behalf of the public to make special findings as to:

  • The safety of any condition prevalent to an electrical installation on or in any premises. 
  • The question of whether any particular standard has been or is being complied with

The provisions of the Electrical Installation Regulations 2009 prescribes that the user or lessor (as the case may be) of any electrical installation shall be responsible for the safety, safe use and maintenance of any electrical installation hat he/she uses or leases.

The Regulations also require that the user or lessor (as the case may be) be in possession of a VALID certificate of compliance (COC)for such electrical installation.

PROTECT YOUR INTERESTS IN PROPERTY SALES

  • As with most property transactions, it is prudent to have inspections done to ascertain the condition of a property.
  • Although many of these inspections are only done by purchasers when problems arise, the legal ramifications to sellers are extensive when dealing with electrical installations covered by many Regulations.
  • Legal costs and further expenses for remedial work to a seller once a purchaser has had the electrical instillation inspected can cost Thousands of Rands.

SOLAR PV POWER SUPPLY SYSTEMS AND INVERTER BASED GENERATION IN PROPERTIES

As a result of the current electrical crisis in South Africa, many persons are having to resort to installing alternative power supply systems. As is the case with states of disaster, there are many unscrupulous operators who emerge overnight to offer their services to a needy public.

It is unfortunate that many of these operators have neither the qualifications and/or required registrations to install these systems which can leave the owners with potential unseen dangers of fire and electrocution and substantial loss of property in the event of a catastrophic fire event which has its origins in the alterative power supply system.

It is also a condition imposed by insurers that these systems be compliant so that insurable events are not compromised by dangerous and non-compliant work performed by service providers.
