    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for electrical installations associated with transportable structures and vehicles intended for connection to low-voltage a.c. supply systems (i.e. exceeding 50V a.c. but not exceeding 1000V a.c.). For the purposes of this Standard the term transportable structure includes vehicles and structures with or without wheels that are capable of being readily moved from one site to another either under their own motive power or otherwise.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out the requirements for electrical installations associated with transportable structures and vehicles that are 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.).For the purposes of this Standard the term ‘transportable structure’ includes both vehicles and structures with or without wheels that can readily be moved from one site to another either under their own motive power or by some other means.This Standard includes additional requirements to those detailed in AS/NZS 3000 for the internal electrical wiring of transportable structures and for any electrical installations intended to provide a low voltage supply for transportable structures by a socket-outlet and plug arrangement that can be connected by unskilled persons. Such installations include those in caravan parks and camping areas with powered sites but exclude those in fairgrounds and temporary camping sites, which are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3002, and those in construction and demolition sites, which are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3012.Transportable structures within the scope of this Standard include the following:(a) Vehicles offering accommodation, including caravans, camper vans, motor homes, camper trailers and livestock or car transporters with accommodation included. (b) Vehicles such as food and drink vending vans and trailers, walk-through educational display caravans and trailers, mobile classrooms and television outside broadcast vans.(c) Transportable structures such as relocatable homes, transportable huts, tents for accommodation, and rigid and non-rigid annexes to vehicles 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.NOTE: Specific construction or demolition activities are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3012.(e) Display units not intended for occupation, e.g. mobile electronic score boards and advertising signs, mobile traffic information signs.(f) In New Zealand, mobile medical connectable installations complying with the requirements of this Standard.NOTE: Further requirements for mobile medical connectable installations can be found in NZS 6115. This Standard does not apply to the following electrical installations:(i) Transportable structures with a permanently connected electricity supply and not intended to be relocated, e.g. tramcars, buses or caravans rendered immobile, and transportable sheds.These structures are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3000.(ii) Vehicles with fixed wiring that are amusement rides or concessions. These vehicles are subject to the requirements of AS 3533.(iii) Transportable structures without fixed wiring, for the provision of entertainment. e.g. circus and carnival tents, temporary vending stalls.These structures are subject to the requirements of AS/NZS 3002.(iv) Pleasure craft as defined in AS/NZS 3004.2.
