Certificate of Compliance and Electrical Safety Certificate
As of 1 July 2013 the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010 were amended. Among other things, these amendments extended the scope of prescribed electrical work that needs certification and changed the certification requirements.
The old CoC (Certificate of Compliance) form can no longer be used for work started after July, 2013. However, it can still be used if the job / project commenced prior to this date.
Under the revised regulations both:
- A new form of Certificate of Compliance (CoC) to certify compliance of the work prior to connection; and
- An Electrical Safety Certificate (ESC) to show that the completed work, as connected, is safe to use, are required.
In most cases the CoC and the ESC can be incorporated into one document - a combined Certificate of Compliance and Electrical Safety Certificate.
The revised regulations say what information needs to be in the certificates but does not include example certificates. A number of organisations have designed combined CoC / -ESC certificates for electricians to use if they wish to do so.
A combined COC / -ESC is available for use here.

All you need to do is install Adobe Reader on your Tablet!
If you are carrying out prescribed electrical work, if you have not done so already, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with all of the changes made to the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010 effective from 1 July 2013.
