SIP

Safe Isolation Provider (SIP)

We are among the few Safe Isolation Providers in the UK market that offer a complete end-to-end service for your electrical isolation procedures and isolator switch installations.

What is a Safe Isolation Provider?

Who can install an isolator switch?

Since June 2023, only registered Safe Isolation Providers (SIPs) are legally permitted to perform safe isolation works. This includes the installation of isolator switches and the de-energisation and re-energisation of meter points to ensure safe working conditions on a customers electrical equipment. Safe Isolation Provider (SIP) is an additional role available to existing accredited Meter Operator Agents (MOAs) to allow them to accept instructions to undertake a limited set of activities at the request of the premise owners without the need to use the Registered Suppliers’ MOAs. 

New Regulations

The scope of work that a SIP is authorised to carry out is deliberately limited and is set out in Section 2H of Distribution Code Use of System Agreement (DCUSA).
‘Safe Isolation Works’ means, in respect of an Entry/Exit Point, works by a SIP Party to:

– De-energise that Entry/Exit Point;

–  (If reasonably necessary) adjust the terminals of the meter and associated equipment and re-make the connection to them to make safe and remedy any disturbance of the connection that may have occurred;

– If required, terminate/replace the customer tails on the Electricity Supplier’s meter (provided that such tails must have been provided and tested by the SIP Party or the customer’s electrical engineer); and

–  Re-energise that Entry/Exit Point.
