What you should know
Whether you are selling your property or buying one with an electric fence, you are required by law to have an electric fence certificate of compliance (EFC). The EFC is for your protection that you have complied with the law and cannot be held liable if anyone is injured by your electric fence, because your electric fence complies with the SANS regulations and Health and Safety Act.
As per Dept of Labour even if your fence was erected before 2012 and you are selling your property you still need an electric fence certificate of compliance. A valid Electric fence certificate of compliance must also be issued if you have had your energizer replaced or additions done to your fence.
