You can still refer to guidance on electrical equipment safety standards despite the 1 January expiry of three Electrical Safety Codes of Practice.
Incorporating minor amendments following reviews for technical accuracy, useability and readability, and supplemented by targeted consultation with key stakeholders, the three codes of practice have been re-issued with effect from 2 January 2020 as:
- Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 - Electrical equipment rural industry (PDF, 0.65 MB)
- Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 - Working near overhead and underground electric lines (PDF, 0.47 MB)
- Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 - Works (PDF, 0.33 MB)
This ensures there is no gap in coverage between expiry of the old codes and commencement of the new codes. The result is continued guidance for industry and workers on electrical safety standards for the use of electrical equipment in the rural industry, for working near overhead and underground electric lines, and for the works of an electricity entity.
