Cabling rules have changed – are your contractors qualified?

The CPRs regulate the cabling industry and ensure that minimum cabling requirements are in place to promote safety and maintain network integrity.

The ACMA has amended the cabling arrangements to ensure all cabling providers have the necessary skills to perform specialised cabling work for the current and emerging customer cabling environment.

It is important to ensure your contractors are skilled and qualified to perform the work.

some of CPRs major requirements are:

  • all customer cabling work in the telecommunications, fire, security and data industries must be performed by a registered cabler
  • depending on the cabling work performed, cablers must obtain either an Open, Restricted or Lift registration that meets the ACMA’s training competency requirements
  • telecommunications cabling is adequately separated or segregated from electrical cabling to avoid creating a dangerous situation

 (visit for full details of cabling requirements)


What’s changing?

Cabling providers undertaking broadband, structured, optical-fibre or co-axial cabling work must have the relevant qualifications for this specialised cabling work.

The new competency requirements apply from 1 July 2012
