Guides to Codes and Practices Streets Opening review
On the 22 March 2017 SOCC members met to review Guides to Codes and Practices Streets Opening. Meetings will be held monthly under the guide review is complete.
The not-for-profit Nat Spec will also be invovled in the process and will have ongoing ownership of the guide once review is finalised. The current guide has not been reviewed since 2009.
The Guide to Codes and Practices for Streets Opening is published to document industry practice and provide essential information and guidance on managing street openings for the provision of underground utility Services. It continues to be an authoritative reference for Local Councils, Utility/Service Providers and their contractors throughout NSW.
The Guide has been available for over 40 years, with editions printed in 1969, 1980, 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007. However, some of the codes and practices were adopted as early as 1932.
