All cable jointing & termination shall be executed by fully trained tradesmen, who hold a valid certificate issued by a Company approved Vendor. The certificate shall not be older than 6 months at the start of work and be valid for the cable operating voltage level concerned.

All cable jointers shall possess a valid jointers certificate signed and issued by the CFDH, Electrical. The certificate shall be issued after successful assessment by a panel consisting of trained personnel. The panel shall be formed by CFDH-E, after successful completion of training by product vendors.

Only kits of approved suppliers, received sealed, shall be used. The kits shall be complete with all original vendor supplied materials including ferrules for jointing. It is not allowed to use substitute ferrules or other jointing or termination materials, not forming part of the original kit. Cable lugs for termination shall be of approved types. Cable jointing/termination shall be made strictly following instructions supplied with the kits.

Every critical stages of jointing, such as cable prepared cable prior to insertion of sleeves, stress tube installation, cable lug installation, heat shrinking and testing.

For every new joint or termination a new complete sealed kit shall be used. It is not permissible to either use left-over materials from other joints, or use materials from different suppliers to complete a kit without written permission from the Company Representative responsible for the work.

Tape for colour coding of phases (red, yellow, blue) shall be of the kit makers meant for the purpose. No ordinary PVC insulating tape shall be used.

For each joint or termination a proper record shall be kept indicating as a minimum date, location, make of utilised materials and the jointers name. This information shall also be embossed on a plain lead sheath and fixed at the joint / termination point.

Each jointer shall have his own Toolkit, complete with tools as listed in Appendix 1.

Particular attention is drawn to the safeguarding equipment installed in outdoor locations and unfinished buildings. Such equipment is particularly vulnerable to damage from water and dust penetration. Equipment shall be adequately protected in this respect while installation work is proceeding. Covers temporarily removed from equipment for purposes of installation shall be reassembled on completion of the Work and replaced when such Work is suspended or otherwise left incomplete. Similarly, all entries shall at all times be effectively sealed against ingress of water and dust, e.g., conduit entries shall be sealed by the insertion of proprietary stopper plugs.

Storage and handling of cable before and during installation shall be executed with regard to Manufacturer's recommendations. Cable drums shall be rotated only in the direction indicated

All cable trunking shall be galvanised unless otherwise specified. Trunking shall be turned-in to form a lip at both edges and shall be supplied in standard lengths of 2 or 3 metres. All cable trunking and accessories shall conform to BS 4678.

Wherever possible all bends, tees, intersection and other accessories shall be fabricated and finished by the trunking manufacturer. Accessories shall be of similar construction and finish to the main trunking.

Due allowance shall be made in long runs of trunking for expansion and contraction of supporting structure. Suitable flexible couplings shall be provided in all instances where trunking crosses expansion joints in building structure.

Trunking lengths shall be connected by internally-fixed rectangular coupling units. Coupling units shall be of sufficient width to provide a maximum of bearing face of 25 mm on each section of trunking to be joined. However, where long spans occur between supports, the couplings shall be of sufficient length and rigidity to prevent any sagging. The lengths of the lids shall be so arranged that joints always coincide with the centres of coupling units.

Trunking shall be supported by substantial brackets spaced in accordance with table 11D of the 16th Edition of the IEE Regulations for Electrical Installation. Additional supports shall be provided at bends and intersections. Brackets shall be painted prior to installation to prevent corrosion.
