- be accompanied by a map showing the proposed location of the cathodic protection system, the metallic structure it is intended to protect and all metallic structures likely to be affected by the system and drawings detailing the cathodic protection system
- pay the relevant registration fee.
Compliance with the current codes and standards of use will be required. Current details of the registration must be maintained on the register.
