This Standard sets out requirements for electrical installations associated with relocatable premises intended for connection to low-voltage a.c. supply systems (i.e. exceeding 50 V a.c. but not exceeding 1 000 V a.c.).
It includes requirements for the internal electrical installation of applicable relocatable premises and for certain types of electrical installations intended to supply electrical power to those premises. Such installations include caravan parks and camping areas with powered sites but excludes fairgrounds and temporary camping sites, which are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3002, and construction and demolition sites, which are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3012.
