Restricted – Install, maintain and modify customer premises communications cabling: ACMA Restricted Rule

Restricted cabling is used in typical domestic premises, small offices, home offices and small business premises. Restricted cablers can install cable in large commercial and industrial premises provided the cabling is behind a compliant device and is not via jumperable distributors or patch panels.

The Telecommunications Cabling Provider Rules (CPRs) 2000 place various limitations on Restricted cablers. These include a prohibition on them performing cabling work where they may have access to a reticulated electrical supply that exceeds typical domestic single-phase and three-phase electrical supply voltages – nominally 240 volts AC (for single phase) or 415 volts AC (for three-phase).
