COVID-19 contingencies for WA Electrical Inspectors

Western Power has advised that due to the impacts of COVID-19 and contingencies taken by the WA Inspectors, approval has been given by Building and Energy to reduce the Inspector’s work scope.

Inspections will only be conducted on the exterior (excluding new connections), whilst the current COVID- 19 situation exists.   

As a result of this reduced scope, the inspectors may in some instances request test results from Electrical Contractors, where previously this has not been asked for.
