    Can an AIA issue a Certificate of Compliance

    This question came via a another forum.
    Very interesting question thou One would expect that the anser is straight forward but thinking about it and referring back to the EIR its not quite so simple

    I am not sure. However a friend of mine has been told by the GEIA that his recently issued 6 page COC is invalid, and he has to purchase the new 4 page COC from the GEIA. The ECA has assured me that the 6 page document is valid. This apparently has something to do with the imminent demise of the EBC This is murky waters and I am not sure about the finer details. Can anyone clarify?
    To make a mistake is human, to learn from that mistake is knowledge and knowledge is strength.

    Love to hear Mark Palmer's view on this one.

    I'm starting to understand why some people are upset with the GEIA.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    No they can't.

    To my knowledge they are a section 21 company and cannot profit from coc's.

    Be careful of these guys they make stuff up to suit themselves.

    who makes the rules...the dol...who is palming off their responsibilities?

    didnt i read somewhere mr palmer has a brother or relative who suddenly appears with quotes for repairs...whats to stop him from issuing cocs?

    it would be interesting to hear the facts right from the horses mouth.

    No I don't believe the dol will stop them because I think the GEIA are in bed with the dol. They have been since their inception.

    Murdock, Norman Palmer is Mark Palmers dad. It was Norman Palmers name that I saw on a quote regarding fixing of an installation where the GEIA were involved.

    Far as I know in order to be appointed AIA may NOT be operating contractors.
