NOC requirements for temporary disconnections

Building and Energy in WA (Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety) has issued a reminder on the Notice of Completion (NOC) requirements for temporary disconnections and reconnections.

The department is aware that NOCs are not always being submitted within the required three days after electrical work has been completed, especially after temporary disconnection and reconnections.

In its Electrical Focus newsletter issues 2 and 3, Building and Energy advised that Western Power had changed the steps required after electrical work is complete to help facilitate the timely reconnection of supply.

To ensure timely reconnection of power for the customer, all sections of the temporary disconnection tag must be completed and an NOC submitted within three days of completing the electrical work.

Completing the temporary disconnection tag does not absolve the requirement of submitting an NOC. The NOC is a requirement under regulation 52(1) of the Electricity (Licensing) Regulations 1991.

The Building and Energy website features information and frequently asked questions on submitting an NOC for temporary disconnections and reconnections.
