SACS Guidelines Update



Western Power has recently updated the SACS guidelines document for contractors. The revised document, SACS Information for Electrical Contractors, can be downloaded from Western Power’s website http://www.westernpower.com.au/electrical-contractors-service-apparatus-connection-scheme.html

The updated guidelines contain some additional requirements for SACS contractors and are summarised as follows:

Requirement for electrical contractors to have a fitness for work policy inclusive of drug and alcohol detection.

Requirement for electrical contractors to submit Notices via ETIC. Refer to Western Power’s website http://www.westernpower.com.au/electrical-contractors-electronic-ticketing.html for details regarding ETIC Notice lodgement.

Compliance with these requirements will be monitored via our audit processes. 

Please also note that the email address for SACS communications has changed. Please send all future correspondence to schemes@westernpower.com.au

Please contact me should you have any queries with regards the above.
