Implementation Period

All states have a 6 month implementation period, to allow the industry to view, gain education and then implement the new requirements. Importantly, this 6 month implementation period will cease on 1 January 2019 and it will then be mandatory for electrical contractors to implement the changes in the 2018 version or else face non-compliance implications.
