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.

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).
