What is an Electrical Certificate of Compliance (C.O.C)?
A Certificate of Electrical Compliance is a document stating that the electrical system in your property and all the wiring, plug sockets, switches and light fittings conform to the current government & ECB requirements. You need to obtain a new COC every time major work is carried out on your electrical system and this is a service that should normally be completed by the company that undertake the work. A certificate of Compliance is an important document and should be kept in a safe place so that you can produce it if required to do so by law. A copy should also be filed with the ECB and kept on record. COC’s expire after 3 years so its important to keep yours up to date and allows you to be aware of any repair work or potentially dangerous aspects associated with you electricity.
