You must comply with 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 specifies requirements, tests and methods of construction for bare electrical conductors and stays for overhead power transmission purposes. There are two parts to this standard that you must comply with depending on if the conductors and stays you are working with are constructed of galvanised steel or are steel clad with aluminium (having a minimum aluminium radial thickness of 5% of the nominal diameter of the wire). The two parts are:
- AS 1222.1 1992 Steel conductors and stays - Bare overhead - Galvanised (SC/GZ)
- AS 1222.2 1992 Steel conductors and stays - Bare overhead - Aluminium clad (SC/AC).
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required by your business.
