Electrical Safety Standards in Review

Posted on Friday, July 10th, 2009

The EL-036 standards committee is meeting in Sydney next month to look at revisions of:

AS/NZS 3760:2003 In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment

AS/NZS 5761:2005 In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment-Second-hand electrical equipment prior to sale

AS/NZS 5762:2005 In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment-Repaired electrical equipment.


As ALIA is directly represented on this committee, now is your opportunity to bring to the committee any problems or suggestions you may have as to improving the operation of these standards. There are already agenda items covering the issues of who is a competent person and how should that competence be specified and tested. Please make your views known by an email to our representative, Andy Ciddor.
