Get in touch with your go-to Electrical Approved Inspection Authority

Who are we?

The EAIA conducts electrical investigations and electrical audit inspections on behalf of the public as well as the Department of Employment and Labour and 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.

An Approved Inspection Authorities is the only body (approved by the Department of Employment and Labour) able to assist the public in terms of protection against dangerous illegal electrical work and invalid certificates of compliance.

An Electrical Compliance Certificate

• is a declaration of electrical safety which should be issued before an installation is put into service OR  produced to the buyer or lessee of an electrical installation prior to the installation being sold or used.

• is not intended to be issued to confirm the completion of a contract

• should not be withheld for contractual reasons, especially if the electrical installation has been made available for use.

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
