Wiring Rules

WorkSafe Regulation and promotion of safety in general industry. Topics include general enquiries, solar and battery energy storage and electrical equipment.

These two-pole devices detect and isolate circuits experiencing small arcing caused by broken conductor strands in damaged flexible cords and fixed wiring or poor terminations.

Consumer Protection Develops, enforces and promotes legislation that protects consumers.

Labour Relations State system employment laws and public sector labour relations. Emergency egress requirements have been improved. Hard-wired equipment circuits of this capacity should be.


Main switches rjles be manually operated and not controlled by electronic devices. Equipment mounted inside meter rupes does not require an IP rating. Two emergency exit paths are required if a switchboard exceeds A or is more than 3m in length. While the currents generally are rhles they can lead to fires. This section also deals with supply systems, main switchboard, main switches, fire pumps, fire and smoke detectors and alarms, air handling equipment. Appendix P provides guidance on vehicle types and charging stations.

DC operates much of iwring equipment in data centres and is becoming very prevalent in domestic installations with solar panels and storage batteries.

No classification means they must not be installed. Like-for-like repairs do not. Where all protection devices are replaced in a switchboard, all final sub-circuits must be RCD protected.


The new Wiring Rules

Electrical Worker Gasfitter Other. Electrical and gas general enquiries Tel: Clearances of 1m from accessible faces of closed switchboards and mm from open doors or racked-out equipment are required.

Switch room door heights and widths have been increased to 2. Alterations requiring wirlng change to a circuit configuration trigger the requirement for 30mA RCD protection for that circuit.

We are using cookies. Lifts used for routine movements of people and goods are considered electrical equipment and are covered in Section 4.

The technology and recognised best practice change over time, so it is important that we have appropriate standards for practitioners.

Contact Building and Energy Building general queries Tel: Topics include electrical wiirng, earthing, switchboards, segregation, testing and more.

The new standard, created through collaboration between industry and government, has now been published with key updates in important areas, such wiriny main switches, residual current devices RCDs and DC wiring systems. Requirements for designated emergency lifts are set out in Section 7 — Safety Services.
