    You can only be registered as a single phase tester / IE / MIE at one contractor at a time.
    (And my view is that is exactly the way it should be, frankly).

    In terms of process to change, it is something I have had to deal with and it can be a real pain if the previous employer does not come to the party. Babalo wants affidavits from all and sundry, and also wants the previous employer's contractor registration certificate returned / updated.

    On the issue of sales being concluded without the seller providing a COC, section 10(4) as referred to by Graham above reads as follows:

    Where a person designs, manufactures, imports, sells or supplies an article or substance for or to another person and that other person undertakes in writing to take specified steps sufficient to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that the article or substance will comply with all prescribed requirements and will be safe and without risks to health when properly used, the undertaking shall have the effect of relieving the first- mentioned person from the duty imposed upon him by this section to such an extent as may be reasonable having regard to the terms of the undertaking.

    When it comes to property sales, this is useful where there are significant issues with the existing electrical installation and the purchaser intends to do major alterations (making bringing the existing installation up to standard wasteful expenditure). On a practical level, it must be noted that where this is done DOL expects an electrical COC to be issued before anyone occupies the building (or occupation is transferred – with occupation being something different to possession).

    [There are illegal electrical connections everywhere in Sa Eskom do nothing about. They run across the road from street lights. Water and electricity are human rights so why do we pay VAT on govt owned entities? Certain foods are VAT free but we pay VAT on water and power? Something does not make sense.

    While we are the subject of things that don't make sense .... a seller needs to provide a valid CoC, valid plans for their house and in some province a bug certificate. HOWEVER, if a bank sells a property, these are things to protect the buyer are not included. The buyer accepts this condition and from my personal experience uses it as an excuse for not providing the required docs 7 years after they bought on auction from a bank. Why are banks exempt from the law? No doubt the conditions of sale are in the small print. If sellers require a CoC to sell property, this should also apply to banks who sell on auction. Rules are rules.

    Who is Babalo?
    So if i attached a letter of service to my Annexure 3 application, can they then remove me from the registration as IE at the company and put me under the new company?

    You can try that, I suppose...

    In our case, we had to submit a sworn affidavit from the IE we were wanting to register onto our contractor registration, and plead for DOL to accept an email from the previous contractor confirming that the IE was no longer employed by them.
