Welcome to the eCoC System
** Please note that the eCoC system will be down for maintenance from 5am to 10am on 15 June 2018.
The Office of the Technical Regulator (OTR) is responsible for compliance with legislation and applicable technical standards in the electricity, gas and water industries to ensure the safety of workers, consumers and property.
With the aim of improving business efficiency, improving compliance, and creating a central source of Certificates of Compliance (CoCs) for Electrical, Gas and Plumbing; the OTR is implementing the eCoC (electronic Certificate of Compliance) system, which is accessible via desktop and mobile devices using the internet.
The eCoC system is available to licensed plumbing, gas and electrical workers and contractors, and to licensed building contractors.
If you have not previously registered your licence details on the eCoC system, please register below. If you are already registered, please sign in.

DC Isolators - Cancellation of Australian Certifications
Australian private certifier SAA Approvals recently cancelled 18 certifications for a range of DC isolators.
The cancellation of these certificates mean that the affected products can no longer be manufactured or imported into South Australia.
Energy Safety Victoria (ESV) has published further information about this issue on their website: click here
A list of affected models can also be found here.
The Office of the Technical Regulator is aligning with the advice issued by ESV.
Updated Smart Meter Wiring Requirements
A meter installation is required to comply with the Technical Regulator Guideline - Smart Meter Minimum Technical Standard and associated Deemed to Comply Wiring Arrangements ().
The guideline specifies the ‘Smart Meter Minimum Technical Standard’ and the ‘Deemed to Comply Wiring Arrangements’, which is applicable to Metering Coordinators, Metering Providers and Electrical Contractors.
Recording Electrical Test Results
The Office of the Technical Regulator has developed testing and verification information to help with recording test results:
- information for the owner/occupier
- a visual inspection form
- a schedule for recording the test results
The visual inspection form, the test schedule and a copy of the eCoC are required for reconnecting the electricity supply.
