AS NZS 3010:2017 Electrical Installations – Generating sets

Updated application date


27 July 2019


AS/NZS 3010: 2017 Electrical installations—Generating sets was published on 8 May 2017.
This new 2017 edition of AS/NZS 3010 will be mandatory from date of publication of Amendment 1.


Due to publishing errors with the current AS/NZS 3010:2017, Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) has determined that this edition AS/NZS 3010:2017 will not be mandated until the date of publication of Amendment 1 for installations commenced after this date. For installations commenced prior to publication of Amendment 1 there will be a 6 month transition period where AS/NZS 3010:2005 Electrical installations—Generating sets can still be used.

Until that date ESV considers the 2005 edition of AS/NZS 3010:2005 Electrical installations—Generating sets to be the mandatory standard.

For more information contact ESV on (03) 9203 9700 and select option 2 – ‘Electrical technical enquires’ or email us at
