You will need this registration, or to be supervised by a registered person, if you intend to undertake telecommunications cabling work (e.g. cabling for telephones, data, fire or security alarm systems). If you only want to work in domestic or small business premises you will only require a restricted registration rather than an open registration.
Typical domestic and small business premises restricted telecommunications cabling work includes:
- work that terminates on a socket or network termination device
- work where the electrical supply voltage does not exceed typical domestic single-phase and three-phase electrical supply voltages
- aerial, underground or broadband cabling work on private property
- aerial cabling work that does not use electricity distribution poles
- work behind a compliant device in multi-storey or campus-style premises, such as behind an alarm panel, modem or customer switching system.
Restricted cabling work does not include:
- cabling work between a compliant device and a distributor or a patch panel
- situations where the reticulated electrical power in a building is a higher voltage than 230V a.c for single-phase
- situations where the reticulated electrical power in a building is a higher voltage than 415V a.c for three-phase
- cabling work where cable sheaths are shared with other services.
