Electrical Network Services Mandatory Upgrades

Power network service providers systems and Australian standards undergo regular continuous improvement reviews to address changing industry needs and improve identified deficiencies in systems and hardware. It is a mandatory requirement that licensed electrical contractors address any sub-standard system and replace  equipment or hardware that has been deemed as potentially unsafe or no longer rated for duty as part of carrying out your works. Powerlinestas carry out inspection of your system in accordance with standards and network requirements and as far as reasonably practicable identify sub-standard and non-compliant items requiring upgrade and identify these as part of or project scope of work and costing. We will notify you, the client, if we find issues after starting that require rectification work or upgrade to meet current standards.

How does this affect you the client?

It is in your best interest for safety and compliance (Including insurance cover) that your service provider meets all mandatory standards. We recommend you discuss any system upgrades and ensure you are happy the service provider you select is providing you with a compliant system and is factoring this into their competitive pricing provided to you. Upgrade and supply of compliant hardware costs may need to be passed to the client.
