Webinar: Aust underground service location standard

By on 5 March, 2013



This webinar will showcase the new Australian Standard, AS 5488—201X, Classification of Subsurface Utility Information (SUI), which has been prepared by Standards Australia Committee IT-036, Subsurface Utility Engineering Information.

The objective of this Standard is to provide utility owners, operators and locators with a framework for the consistent classification of information to manage subsurface utilities. While the depiction and location of subsurface utilities and related asset information may appear in as-built records, due to the lack of historical evidence utility information and locations may not be exactly as shown or the records may not fully account for all the buried utility systems, This lack of reliable information during design and construction activities can result in costly conflicts, delays, utility service disruptions, redesigns, personal injuries and lost lives.

Knowing where and what a subsurface utility is, its condition and its status in its asset lifecycle can significantly reduce the occurrence of interference and conflict with valuable subsurface utility infrastructure. The application of this Standard is intended to improve public safety and reduce costly property damage and to provide much more accurate information on the location, type and condition of subsurface utilities than has been available in the past.

It is anticipated that the final Standard will be published in March 2013.
