“The proposed changes are significant. We are interested in receiving feedback from consumers and individuals across the industry. The public comment period is a key opportunity to ensure everyone can be involved with this revision,” said Gary Busbridge, chair of the Australian and New Zealand committee responsible for the revision.
Proposed changes in the draft include:
- a restructure of the ‘Safety Services’ clause in Section 7;
- a number of new definitions, including ‘main switch’, ‘arc fault detection device’ and ‘combined outbuilding’;
- clarity on exclusion zones in wet areas and clearances around switchboards;
- provisions relating to residual-current devices (RCDs);
- new appendices providing guidance on a number of topics, including switchgear and control gear; loss of supply; conduiting; arc fault detection devices; and DC installations.
Following the nine-week public comment period, the committee will consider all comments in detail. If necessary, further drafting will be undertaken.
