Get ready for the new wiring rules

We are spreading the word about upcoming changes to the Wiring Rules at information sessions across the state in June and July.

Come along to find out what’s new in the 2017 edition of the Australian Standard AS/NZS3000, which is due for release later in the year. Changes include:

  • new requirements for safety switches
  • increased mechanical protection for cables installed within a ceiling space
  • additional requirements for electrical appliances, accessories and electrical equipment
  • enhanced safety requirements for electrical equipment
  • installed in locations exposed to water
  • five new appendices:
    • continuity of supply for active assisted living
    • electrical conduits
    • installation of arc fault detection devices
    • guidance for the installation and location of electrical vehicle charging stations
    • DC circuit protection and switching devices.

Further information

The roadshow events have been so popular that we have opened up new events in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
