AS/NZS 3000:2018, “Electrical Installations,” also known as the Wiring Rules, has been updated.
“The Wiring Rules contributes heavily to Australian life through its guidance in the design, construction, and verification of electrical installations,” says Adam Stingemore, Standards Australia’s general manager of strategy and engagement.
The amendment includes several changes to the 2018 publication, including:
- Clarification of sections “Service Protective Device” and “Common Areas”
- Updates to sections “Luminaires, Appliances, and Other Electrical Equipment” and “Special Electrical Installations”
- References now include AS/NZS 5139, “Electrical Installations—Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment”
“This is an important standard for many within the electrical sector, with the protection and safety of workers at its core,” says Stingemore. “With the support of relevant stakeholders and industry, Standards Australia remains committed to keeping this standard up-to-date as we help build a safer and more resilient Australia.”
The amendment is available through Standards Australia’s website and directly from SAI Global and Techstreet.
