Regulation Guidelines Overview

Utility Advisory Council members and Working Group members have worked with the Electrical Safety Authority to define and produce guidelines to facilitate implementation of specific sections of the Electrical Distribution Safety Regulation. Consideration has been given to ensuring guidelines will clarify requirements for local distribution companies and facilitate compliance to these requirements. Guidelines will continue to be evaluated and updated, and new guidelines will be developed as required to help the industry maintain safety standards. To ensure local distribution companies are working with current versions all posted guidelines will have a date and revision number.

Working Groups have produced the following guidelines. These guidelines clarify and interpret the requirements for compliance to specific sections in the Electrical Distribution Safety Regulation and should be used by all local distribution companies in Ontario.
