High voltage installations audits
High voltage is defined as greater than 1000V a.c. RMS or 1500V ripple-free d.c.
Section 221 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 (the ES Regulation) requires that an auditor inspect high voltage electrical installations before connection or reconnection to a source of electricity, if:
- the high voltage electrical installation is being connected for the first time
- electrical installation work has been performed on the high voltage electrical installation.
The pre-commissioning inspection ensures that the installation, related electrical equipment and protective equipment have correct certification and comply with certification documentation and appropriate standards.
Read the criteria auditors must meet to become accredited to work on high voltage installations.
