Plumbing Compliance Certificate

A PLUMBING CERTIFICATE IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THE TRANSFER OF A PROPERTY IN KZN

 

The Plumbing Industry Regulation Board has imposed an obligation on its members, to the effect that when it comes to the installation of storage water heaters its member plumbers are now required to issue a certificate on installation.  

 

This has caused some confusion for participants in the property market in KZN who believe that “a plumbing certificate” is now needed for the transfer of a property.

 

Please note that the obligation imposed by the Plumbing Industry Regulation Board  has nothing to do with the transfer of property in KZN.

 

In Cape Town they have had a requirement for a plumbing certificate since 2012 because the City of Cape Town gazetted a new By-Law to make this a requirement.

 

EThekwini has not gazetted any such by-law.
