Streamlining technical regulation for plumbing, gas and electricity

Do you work in the gas, electricity or water industry? Would you like to have access to an electronic system to manage the requirements of the Certificate of Compliance process?

Have YourSAy on streamlining Certificates of Compliance (COC) through making COC’s available through an online service.

South Australia’s Office for the Technical Regulator (OTR) is responsible for ensuring the safety of consumers and property as well as compliance with legislation, technical standards and codes in the gas, electricity and plumbing industries.

The OTR administers Certificates of Compliance (COC) under the Gas Act 1997, the Electricity Act 1996 and the Water Industry Act 2012. The COCs certify that the work has been carried out by an appropriately licensed person and complies with the applicable technical standards and other requirements as specified under the relevant industry Acts.

Currently COC’s are submitted in hard copy to the OTR, which is both labour and time intensive for all parties involved. The OTR are now looking at streamlining the hard copy Certificate process in to an electronic format but first seeking feedback from the gas, electricity and water industries and general members of the public on this option.

Consultation on this idea will occur over two phases.

Phase 1: The OTR will seek feedback from the gas, plumbing, and electricity industries as well as the general public via this YourSAy website.

Stage 2: Feedback will be consolidated and will form the basis of a Business Case for change.

By having YourSAy on streamlining the Certificate of Compliance you can help shape the proposed Business Case. To have YourSAy on this idea follow this link to the short survey here.

Streamlining the Certificates of Compliance is also a 90 Day Change Project. To view this project click here.
