Interference-Causing Equipment Standard (ICES)

Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is publishing the following document:

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

ICES-004, Issue 3 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 effectiveness, toward ensuring continued compliance of the power systems they manage. ICES-004, Issue 3 was developed with extensive consultations on the part of the electrical utilities and the RABC. A draft of ICES-004, Issue 3 was published on July 28, 2001 for public comment. No comments were received on the draft, and this final version is therefore being published without further change.

The ICES-004, Issue 3 document is available at the following Internet WWW addresses: for the English version and for the French version.
