All cabling work, including telephone, data, fire and security alarm systems cabling, that connects with the telecommunications network must be performed by a registered cabler or under the direct supervision of a registered cabler.
Under the Cabling Provider Rules (CPRs), cablers are required to register with a registrar accredited by the ACMA.
All registered cablers are required to undertake appropriate training modules to ensure that they are competent to perform the cabling work according to the Wiring Rules (Australian Standard AS/CA S009), which ensure safety to consumers, cablers and the network.
Attention all cabler’s, you are now able to now move a larger range of nbn™ service’s under the recently released Authority to Alter Facilities in Residential and Small Business Premises. The nbn™ Authority to Alter will allow registered cabling technicians to make a range changes to nbn equipment within an end user’s premises without seeking prior permission from nbn. Such changes may include rewiring a home in order to move a Network Termination Device (NTD) from one room to another more suited to the end user’s needs.
nbn’s Authority to Alter which originally only allowed for registered cablers to modify internal cabling prior to the network boundary on the nbn™ FTTN Network has now been expanded to include the nbn™ FTTP,FTTC and HFC Networks. Modification of the nbn™ Wireless and Satellite premises networks prior to the NTD still requires permission from nbn™.
You will also notice on the webpage where you will find the document, you will see that nbn™ provides a link for consumers to the Australian Registered Cablers website, make sure you have registered and if not go to www.registeredcablers.com.au.
NOTE: the document is targeted to you as a Registered Cabler
Care must be taken when undertaking any work as the authorisation requires you to use only approved equipment and full testing. So make sure you access the webpage were you can download the full document as well as useful information for new properties.
Your first call, every time.
