ASP Scheme and contestable works
In December 2017, the ASP Scheme Rules were revised to be more aligned with digital meter requirements.
Contestability also extends to other capital works. This is usually requested and funded by individuals or organisations to suit site developments or when damage is caused by others.
Customers can refer to the list of ASPs from the links below. There are separate lists for ASPs who are accredited to perform different types of connection services.
Only the installation of distributor based meters has been affected by the changes on the 1 December 2017. The metering Power of Choice changes do not affect Level 2 Classes 2A, 2B or 2C. If you want to do work in these classes you must be accredited accordingly as an ASP.
If you want to continue any work associated with equipment such as load control receivers, you will need to maintain or receive Level 2 accreditation, including class 2D. Dedicated load control equipment remains the responsibility of the distribution network service provider and the requirement for class 2D accreditation remains in place after 1 December 2017.
Even though installation of basic type metering is no longer allowed, the qualifications and skills remain valid and may help prepare you to become a subcontractor to metering providers and distribution networks.
Before seeking authorisation to work on or near an electricity network, all employees and sub-contractors of ASPs must be registered with the Scheme. Employees and sub-contractors will also need to be trained in safety and operating procedures of the local electricity distributor. If the electricity distributor cancels authorisation, this could result in cancellation of accreditation under this scheme.
To register employees or sub-contractors with an ASP, ASPs must complete the appropriate form below.
