    How long before this is extended to the electrical industry? What is next, vehicle roadworthies?

    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PLUMBERS!!!!!!!!!!
    "As of Friday, 24 June 2022, the amendment to SANS 10254, pertaining to the removal of the reference to the Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) and the plumbing Certificate of Compliance (CoC) requirement from the standard was published in the Government Gazette. Save for the removal of the PIRB and the CoC requirement from the standard, all other installation, replacement and repair requirements in terms of the standard remain the same.
    The amendment to the SANS 10254 no longer compels a plumber to issue a CoC in respect of geysers but it does not deny a licensed plumber from issuing a CoC from a recognised body. In issuing a CoC from a recognised body, this gives reassurance to the client and us as the insurer of the quality of the work done."

    It appears we can expect more lowering of standards in professional fields based on being "unconstitutional"

    The way I understand this was that the PIRB was an employers organization that manged to get itself " teeth" and you could only issue a certificate if you joined the organization.

    If we transferred that thougt process to the electrical industry - It would be forcing everyone to join ECA, which is an employers organization , before you could write out a COC.
    As Electrical contractors we have to register with DOL and do not need to be a member of ECA to issue a COC.

    It may not be long before plumbers need to register with DOL, and COC comes back.

    I think the unconstitutional part was the insistence that plumbers had to belong to an employers organization - I may have it wrong
