    Soemthing I beleive should have been done a long time ago ... and should be done a lot more frequently.

    I hope Registered and unregistered is clearly defined ... You dont have to be an ECA member nor ECB member to be a registered electrical contractor

    My company for example is no longer registered with any association or board ... however the company is registered as an "electrical contractor" with the DOL (The department of labour).

    What you need to look out for is a registration number ... for example in KZN ... a registered electrical contracting company would have a registration number like "KZN 2020" with a date of registration for example I have a 3 year registration ... 1/12/2018 - 1/12/2021.

    I hope the technical advisor is going to point out that every single person who is registered and works in the industry has some form of identification with the persons level of competancey ... from a labourer to a elconop 1 right through to MIE (master installation electrician) ... this is one of the biggest challenges we face in the industry ... having to work amongst unskilled personal ...who create a dangerous environment for everyone ... especially when working on sites which have a maintance team and more than one sub contractor.


    “We encourage ECA members to invite estate agents and conveyancing attorneys in their areas to come to these meetings so that they can be brought up to speed on the legal requirements pertaining to Certificates of Compliance – specifically that only registered electrical contractors may legally issue CoCs when properties are sold.” “Using unregistered electrical contractors can be an expensive exercise – as many people have discovered.”
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.
