Service & Installation Rules

Welcome to the Victorian Service & Installation Rules (SIR) website. This website is administrated by the Distributors' SIR Management Committee as a service to electricity distributors, customers, their agents and the associated electricity industry.  The objective of these Rules is to provide Victorian electricity customers with industry agreed "reasonable technical requirements" that meet all legislative and Code requirements for the supply and metering related aspects of any connection to the Victorian electricity supply networks.

Victorian Service & Installation Rules

The Victorian Service and Installation Rules apply to all connections to the electricity supply networks operated by Electricity Distributors, AusNet Services, Citipower, Jemena Electricity Network, Powercor Australia Ltd and United Energy.

* Please note the 2017 and 2019 editions incorporate minor amendments to the previous major update published in 2014. The amendments were developed to correct minor errors and make material changes to the Rules.
