The following list is provided to ASP/1s and Ausgrid contractors to help identify companies (suppliers) that are able to supply individuals who have met Ausgrid’s competency requirements to complete field recording of network assets for contestable and/or Ausgrid funded assets.
The suppliers have met all prerequisites for the Field Recording of Network Assets authorisation, permitting them to undertake the work.
Under the ASP/1 Authorisation Agreement, ASP/1s are responsible for the quality, accuracy, and timeliness of field recording of networks assets completed by the suppliers.
This responsibility also includes indemnifying Ausgrid against any loss or damage resulting from inaccurate field recordings provided.
If the chosen supplier does not hold a separate authorisation to work on or near the Ausgrid network as an ASP/1 or contractor, the ASP/1 or contractor will be responsible for the supervision of the supplier when working at their sites (for ASPs, this is as a non-electrical specialist worker as per clause 2.5 of the ASP/1 Authorisation Agreement, and ES4 Service Provider Authorisation).
The ASP/1 or Ausgrid contractor engaging the services of a supplier is responsible for confirming the individual holds authorisation to conduct Field Recording. This may be done by checking the details, including authorisation expiry date, of an individual’s “Field Recording of Network Assets Authorisation” card.
All field recordings must comply with the Network Standard NS100 Field Recording of Network Assets, T0005 Field Recording Technical Guide and ES4 Service Provider Authorisation.
Ausgrid does not warrant the performance of the suppliers. Inclusion on this list does not imply competency or capability beyond the minimum skill requirement, nor does it imply any comment on the business skills and practices or quality of the suppliers.
Inclusion on the list is subject to continued endorsement by the Manager Electrical Safety & Authorisations, Ausgrid. If you wish to find out more about Ausgrid’s competency requirements for field recording in order to be added to the list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
*Ausgrid Network Area relates to the geographic area North and/or South of the Hawkesbury River in which the nominated company has indicated they are willing to conduct the field recording of network assets. Authorised individuals are not restricted to the geographic areas nominated above for conducting field recording activities.
