All communications cabling work must be performed by a registered cabler. If a cabler is registered, they will have a card which proves that they can legally perform cabling work.
Under the Telecommunications Cabling Provider Rules 2000 all customer cabling work must be undertaken in accordance with Australian Standard AS/ACIF S009 Installation requirements for customer cabling (Wiring Rules).
This standard defines the technical requirements for the installation or repair of cabling that is connected to a telecommunications network.
The standard covers cabling practice sufficient to ensure that the installation or normal use of the cabling does not expose cablers or customers to any dangers and/or adversely affect the telecommunications network.
Any complaints about a cabler or cabling work should be reported to the ACMA.
Please use this form if you wish to lodge a complaint about an organisation/individual that is:
- unregistered cabler who is performing cabling work; or
- non-compliant work that has been performed by a registered cabler.
