ICES-004Interference-Causing Equipment Standard for Alternating Current High Voltage Power Systems ICES-004, Issue 3 - Draft.

ICES-004, Issue 3 - Draft was revised from the former Issue 2 to take account of electrical utilities' concerns with respect to the costs of performing repeated radio noise measurements for power lines and substations that undergo modification. The revised rules for retesting modified power facilities allows for more discretion on the part of the utilities, which should result in more efficiency and economy, without sacrificing efficacy, toward ensuring continued compliance of the power systems they manage.
