Should you have suggestions and comments for improving the Code, please send them to EnergySafety in writing and we will be happy to consider them.

Note: This Code does not apply to electrical work performed on network operator's transmission and distribution facilities, although network operators may wish to adopt those principles relevant to their operations.
