Electric Fence Compliance Certificate
Electric Fence Compliance Certificate in Cape Town.
From 1 December 2012 all new, upgraded and repaired electric fence installations in South Africa must be compliant and the government has now established strict new regulations for this industry.
Owners of properties that have an Electric Fence installation must provide the new owner, when selling, with an Electric Fence Certificate to confirm that the Electric Fence installation is compliant and deemed safe.
This is only if the Electric Fence forms part of the property being sold and not a communal system in which case it will be the responsibility of the Body Corporate and not the individual property owner as the Electric Fence is shared by multiple property owners.
