Safety around your home

Electrical install defects

In the interest of public safety, connections to Ausgrid’s electricity network must comply with all relevant safety standards.

Safety standards include the NSW Electricity Supply Act 1995, the Electricity (Consumer Safety) Regulation 2006 and Ausgrid’s Network Standards.

A defect notice may be issued if your electrical installation does not comply with safety standards. This may be due to incorrect or faulty wiring, recent alterations or additions to the connection or trees and branches growing too close to electrical wires on the property.
