Accredited Service Provider (ASP) Scheme and contestable works.
An ASP is someone of an organisation who is accredited with the Australian government.
The ASP Scheme Rules were revised in December 2017 to better align with the digital meter requirements from 1 December 2017.
Contestability may also be extended to other capital works requested by and funded by individuals or organisations to suit site developments (such as asset relocations), or required as a result of damage caused by others.
Customers can use the lists of ASPs at the links below. There are separate lists for ASPs who are accredited to perform different types of connection services.
Level 1 – Construction of network assets
You will need a Level 1 ASP to extend the overhead or underground network to reach your property, or if you require the capacity of the existing network (the amount of electricity it can safely supply) to be increased. This may include high and low voltage works, substations and basic metering.
Level 2 – Service work/connection services
You will need a Level 2 ASP to perform work closer to your premises such as:
- disconnecting your premises from the network (class 2A)
- installing, upgrading and/or energising (Connection point) an underground service line to connect your premises to the electricity network (class 2B)
- installing, upgrading and/or energising (Connection point) an overhead service line to connect your premises to the electricity network (class 2C)
The decision to apply to become, or renew, Level 2 accreditation is for each individual ASP or potential ASP to make.
Only the installation of distributor based meters has been affected by the changes on the 1December 2017.
The changes do not affect Level 2 Classes 2A, 2B or 2C. If you want to do work in these classes you must be accredited accordingly as an ASP.
If you want to continue with work associated with equipment such as load control receivers, you will need to maintain or receive Level 2 accreditation, including class 2D. Dedicated load control equipment remains the responsibility of the distribution network service provider and the requirement for class 2D accreditation remains in place after 1 December 2017.
Even though installation of basic type metering will no longer be allowed after 1 December 2017, the qualifications and skills remain valid and may help prepare you to become a subcontractor to metering providers and distribution networks.
If you want to be accredited as a Level 2 ASP, more information on the required competencies is contained in the ASP Scheme Rules.
Level 3 – Design of network assets
You will need a Level 3 ASP to design distribution network assets, including separate classes for underground or overhead.

What does NMI stand for?
NMI stands for – National Meter Identifier.
Why do I need a NMI for a new electricity connection?
The NMI number ‘ties’ the customer and the electricity meter together so that the customer can be be billed by an energy retailer. The relevant network operator issues this number via the retailer to the end customer and allows the electrician to submit his paperwork when they connect the meter to the network. The electrician cannot legally connect the meter if he does not have a NMI issued.
How do I get an NMI number or Job Number (Ausgrid)?
Energy Connections NSW can facilitate the issuing of this number simply click on the relevant links above to find out further info.
How long does it take to get an NMI number or Job Number?
Once we have gained authorisation from the customer, we submit the request to the relevant network operator for your area and the number usually is forwarded to the electrician within 2 to 5 business days.
If your electrician has requested a PTC (Permission to Connect) – only relevant to the Endeavour Energy network, these will take a total of 10 to 14 business days to receive. Your electrician needs both the NMI & PTC in this network before he can legally connect the premise to the electricity network.
I don’t know if I need a NMI or Job number or what network my property is located in?
Don’t be too worried which electricity network you are in or if you need a NMI or Job Number. We will do all the work once we receive your application to determine what is required for your electrician.
What can delay the issuing of an NMI?
Usually delays occur when we are not given the full and correct address information. Provided we are given Lot, DP, house number, street name and type, suburb and post code delays are usually minimised. Also providing your electricians correct email address minimises any communication errors and delays.
My electrician has asked for the NMI on my existing connection
If your electrician has had to make adjustments to your existing meter he will need your NMI number so he can submit his paperwork to the network operator. The number is found on you electricity account, otherwise you can contact your current energy retailer and ask for it.
Universa enim illorum ratione cum tota vestra confligendum puto. Ut necesse sit omnium rerum, quae natura vigeant, similem esse finem, non eundem. At enim sequor utilitatem. Ne amores quidem sanctos a sapiente alienos esse arbitrantur.
Quae cum essent dicta, finem fecimus et ambulandi et disputandi. Iam quae corporis sunt, ea nec auctoritatem cum animi partibus, comparandam et cognitionem habent faciliorem. Itaque contra est, ac dicitis; Satisne ergo pudori consulat, si quis sine teste libidini pareat? Causa autem fuit huc veniendi ut quosdam hinc libros promerem. Post enim Chrysippum eum non sane est disputatum.
