Regulations Consultation Papers
ESV is calling for submissions in relation to the following proposed regulations.
Electricity Safety (Management) Regulations
The proposed Regulations are to be made under the Electricity Safety Act 1998 (the Act), which requires major electricity companies – those operating electricity supply networks – to submit electricity safety management schemes (ESMSs) to ESV and comply with accepted ESMSs. The Act also allows submission of ESMSs for employers of electrical workers, occupiers of specified premises and owners of complex electrical installations on a voluntary basis and permits those entities to seek exemption from prescriptive compliance requirements.
The primary objectives of the proposed Regulations are to prescribe content requirements for ESMSs and safety management systems and requirements for reporting of serious electrical incidents to ESV.
- ESV has released this consultation paper explaining the key features and changes to the regulations, and
- Appendix 3 – Independent review of cost impact.
Electricity Safety (Cathodic Protection) Regulations
The proposed Regulations are to be made under the Act. The primary objectives of the proposed Regulations are to prescribe cathodic protection systems for the purposes of the Act, and provide procedures for the registration of those prescribed cathodic protection systems.
- ESV has released this consultation paper explaining the key features and changes to the regulations.
