4th Low Voltage Conference - Sydney, Australia
Standards Australia announced today that the 2018 edition of AS/NZS 3000:2018, Electrical Installations (known as the Wiring Rules) has been published in Australia and New Zealand.
The new standard, created through collaboration between industry and government, has now been published with key updates in important areas, such as main switches, residual current devices (RCDs) and DC wiring systems.
Is your business prepared for these amendments?
The Wiring Rules affect your businesses every day. Whether you are an electrical contractor or an electrical engineer, the changes to each clause in a revision of the Wiring Rules affect your compliance with State legislation. Anyone involved in the planning and design of electrical systems, installation or maintenance must have a clear idea about the various requirements contained in the standard.
The primary purpose of the AS/NZS 3000 standard, like many of its various other equivalent national standards, is to ensure the safety of personnel, livestock and property against the dangers (e.g. electric shock and fire) arising from the use and handling of electrical equipment and appliances. For those installations covered in the scope of this standard, its provisions are mandatory and must be followed.
Need to know more? Attend the upcoming 4th Low Voltage Conference which will cover all the amendments and how they will affect industry.
This conference will review the application and best practice in the requirements laid down in the standard AS/NZS 3000:2018, commonly known as Australia-New Zealand Wiring Rules.
