This Standard specifies particular requirements for electrical installations in patient areas. These requirements are additional to those specified in AS/NZS 3000 and the New Zealand Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010.
This standard sets out the requirements for areas in new electrical installations and for alterations and repairs of patient areas in existing electrical installations where the organization/entity responsible for that electrical installation has determined that low-voltage medical electrical equipment will be used on a patient.
It covers special patient areas, including homecare installations and transportable vehicles. It also contains requirements for identification, inspection and testing of patient areas.
