Description

This Code intends to protect people and property from electric shock, physical injury, and fire resulting from conductive thermal insulation becoming electrically live.

The requirements for all domestic installations set out in this Code will enable property owners and industry to manage electrical safety risks associated with installing new, and working with fitted, conductive thermal insulation in a number of settings.

Scope

The use of conductive thermal insulation (due to its ability to conduct electricity) requires the provision of additional controls to minimise the potential for the conductive thermal insulation to become electrically live.

This Code specifies procedures for:

  • working with electrically conductive thermal insulation when installing a new electrical installation
  • safe working conditions when adding and repairing electrical fittings and appliances, including recessed luminaires and electrical cabling in the presence of existing conductive thermal insulation
  • the removal or alteration of existing conductive building services fitted adjacent to existing conductive thermal insulation
  • accessing confined spaces safely where conductive thermal insulation is already fitted
  • the safe assessment and/or removal of existing fitted conductive thermal insulation.

NOTE: This Code does not apply if joint Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3000 Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules Part 1 is being used.
