DID YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NOW A REQUIREMENT TO HAVE A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE WHEN INSTALLING OR CHANGING ELECTRIC FENCING?
With new regulations it is essential that you have a ‘COC’ (certificate of compliance) to ensure that everything is installed correctly when installing a new or adding to an electric fence.This includes many tests that need to be done. These tests look at – the correct amount of earth spikes, lightning diverters, warning signs and energizers. Clients who are homeowners and want to sell their property will need a ‘COC’ before doing so.
These regulations stipulate that all electric fences installed after 1 October 2012 must be certified and have an electric fence certificate of compliance. It also applies to electric fences that have
been altered, added to or where ownership of the premises changed after 1 October 2012.
It also stipulates that where there is a change of ownership of the premises on which the electric fence exists after 1 October 2012, the user must obtain an electric fence system certificate. This means that a homeowner whose installation was done before 1 October 2012 is not required to obtain such a certificate, but that such a certificate will be required by the user if the property is transferred after 1 October 2012 and the user wishes to make use of the electric fence system.
