You may require this standard if you are an electricity network operator or electrical contractor and intend to design, construct, commission, operate, maintain or decommission an electricity network.
This standard sets out the requirements for printed underground marking tape suitable for use in conjunction with underground public utility services as a means of indicating the proximity of a service. It applies to tape which is not detectable by metal detectors.
Complying with this standard is not mandatory. However if you can show that you complied with the provisions of this standard then that will be regarded as evidence that you have met your obligation to carry out electrical work safely. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required by your business.
