4.1.14 Cable identification by ICPs and IDNOs

  • All cables shown on the cable records must be exposed at the point of Connection (POC) position to allow positive cable identification, including access all-round the cables for identification using an approved signalling device.

  • To avoid the possibility of opening an HV cable, all LV cables will need to positively be identified.  There are 3 methods of achieving this so the extent of the contestable work extends to all work required to allow positive identification. The methods are:

    • 600v/1000v plastic embossed outer sheath of the cable.  

    • Digging back along the cable to an existing service joint

    • Single cable shown on the cable plans which is clearly designated as being an LV cable and only one cable found at the work location.
