SAI ac-Trial Only Information

This page holds information for those taking part in the trial within the trial area ONLY.

A trial of the principles and procedures of the new standard will be trialled in the Rugby DU area, specifically Ashton, which is just North of Hanslope Junction to Hillmorton of North West and Central (NW and C) Region. As it is strictly limited to use by those in the trial area, the new standard (NR/L3/ELP/25000) will only be available in preview mode, this is so that assessments can be made, against agreed criteria and information collated to support relevant consultations associated with the trial.

The trial commences in Autumn 2019 and first ‘boots on ballast’ Earthed Isolation; applying the new procedures is scheduled for January 2020. If the trial is successful,and subject to relevant consultations and approvals, we plan to ‘roll out’ the new procedures nationally from May 2020.

Please note that any information in this section is for use within the trial and the trial area only. Forms, documents and information may be subject to change post trial completion. (We advise that the download, use and dissemination of any forms or information is strictly controlled and retained for use on the trial area only.)
