Technical Guidelines: Approval of Plans & Construction

Approval of Designs, Equipment and Construction

Sections 6 and 7 of the Regulation require that all equipment and plans or standard design drawings used in the construction of a distribution system be approved. Section 8 requires that all construction be inspected and certified safe before being put into use.

Guidelines clarifying and interpreting the requirements of the three sections were developed by working groups comprised of electric distributors and other interested parties. These guidelines are available below for download individually or in one combined document.
