    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements, in addition to those of AS/NZS 3000:2000, for electrical installations in relocatable premises, including caravans and tents, and in caravan parks and camping areas.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    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.Relocatable premises within the coverage of this Standard include the following:(a) Registrable vehicles offering accommodation, including caravans, camper vans, motor homes, camper trailers and livestock or car transporters with accommodation included.(b) In New Zealand, other registrable premises including food and drink vending vans and trailers, mobile x-ray caravans, mobile blood banks, walk-through educational display caravans and trailers, mobile classrooms, television outside broadcast vans. (c) Non-registrable relocatable premises including relocatable homes, transportable huts, tents for accommodation, and rigid and non-rigid annexes to premises referred to in (a) and (b).(d) Temporary site offices, cloakrooms, meeting offices, dormitories, canteens, toilets or other facilities provided on construction and demolition sites.(e) In New Zealand, registrable display units not requiring occupation, e.g. mobile electronic score boards and advertising signs, mobile traffic information signs This Standard does not apply to the following electrical installations: (i) Relocatable premises with a permanently connected electricity supply and not intended to be relocated, e.g. tramcars, buses or caravans rendered immobile, transportable sheds.These are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3000.(ii) Registrable vehicles with fixed wiring that are amusement rides or concessions. These are subject to the requirements of AS 3533.(iii) In Australia other registrable premises including food and drink vending vans and trailers, mobile x-ray caravans, mobile blood banks, walk-through educational display caravans and trailers, mobile classrooms, television outside broadcast vans.NOTE: It is intended that the inclusion of at least some of these items in the scope for Australia will be investigated in the near future.(iv) Relocatable premises, without fixed wiring, for provision of entertainment. e.g. circus and carnival tents, temporary vending stalls.These are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3002.(v) In Australia, registrable display units not requiring occupation, e.g. mobile electronic score boards and advertising signs, mobile traffic information signs.
