What is a Registered Data Cabler?

A common misconception is that anyone can safely run data cabling throughout their home or business. Or maybe you figure that an electrician runs electrical cables as part of their job so should be able to run data cabling as well. The reality is to run data cabling you need to be a registered or licenced cabler.

ACMA or the Australian Communications and Media Authority stipulate that to work on data cabling or networks you need to be a registered cabler. This ensures that the cabler knows the cabling standards and regulations to protect the safety of the cabler, the customer and the telecommunications network.

So when you need a data cable installation in your home or business, make sure you're using a registered cabler.
