    COC for an electric stove

    How many electricians here issue a COC when they connect a stove to an existing stove isolator?

    However it does clearly state on the documentation provided with the appliance that the connection must be done by a certified electrician.

    I am busy with a job a the moment where a landlord has indicated to a tenant that he cannot use the stove he connected himself until the connection is checked by an electrician. and a " a piece of paper" indicating that it has been checked is provided.

    We occasionally get requested to inspect and supply a 'Safety Certificate' for a piece of machinery or production equipment. It's not a legislative requirement it's often just for their own internal safety requirements. We have a 'certificate' we just adapt according to the case in hand where we fill in the relevant standards it meets and sign it to say it's deemed safe according to those standards. A word of warning though, it's a good idea to check your professional or trade insurance is happy to cover you for this.

    This heading only just caught my eye. Did this landlord ever ask the plumbers doing geyser replacements to certify their geyser connections? It is, after all, specified by the manufacturers in their installation guide that the electrical connections be done by a suitably qualified(accredited) electrician.
