    I want to help a youngster but do not know who/where he can contact the correct person, he is in Alberton.
    All comments will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I don't know how anyone else is going, but I got gateway timeouts trying to download from those links.

    Sparks sent me the pdf - I've got it down to 300dpi and it's now 993KB available at https://www.theforumsa.co.za/documen...-scan-tfsa.pdf

    Hope that helps.

    I'll pass it by my wireman for some feedback too, but I did notice a few things that surprised me:

    Why would you use a calculated PSC on a single phase supply? Use a PSC tester for crying out loud.
    How can you issue a COC on an installation where your PSC is higher than your short-circuit/withstand rating?
    Section 3 - description of installation... Ja, about that one

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I had the same thought and checked what we're doing on our COC's - and we're doing the same thing. Apparently it comes from a "how to complete the electrical COC form" session done by the ECA I sent my top staff to a couple of years back.

    Thanks Dave, I usually download not upload so I am green on that. Will educate myself for next time though.
    All valid coments so far. As per "notes" althought the fixed appliance circuits are indicated on the COC, the actual appliance is not covered. The circuits still have to be indicated and must comply.
    I am hoping someone can give me details of where to report this turd.
    I am not even sure where exactly the house is, looks like the guy who signed off is not either.
