Wiring Rules to be released
19 July 2007
AS/NZS 3000:2007 Electrical Installations, more commonly known as the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules, is expected to be released in the final quarter of this year.
Over many years, the Wiring Rules has provided a unified approach to electrical installation safety. It has provided requirements for their design and construction to ensure safety from fire and electric shock and prevent electrical faults caused by poor, installation design, equipment selection and installation practices.
The Wiring Rules has played an important role in decreasing the incidence of electrical injuries and fatalities and the changes in the new edition are intended to further reduce such occurrences.
The Wiring Rules has been 'the bible' for electrical contractors, design consultants, regulators, electrical industry training bodies, and manufacturers, importers, wholesalers and retailers of electrical equipment and accessories.
A seminar series to promote the Standard is scheduled to take place in 2008. The seminars will be a useful exercise for users of the Standard to help gain a better understanding of the new amendments and how to implement these changes.
