The Australian Cablemakers Association (ACA) is pleased to announce that the Australian Cable Initiative (ACI) has been relaunched as a separate not-for-profit entity to the ACA with its own Board of Directors.

The main purposes of the ACI are to:

  • Advocate for improved safety standards relating to electrical cables sold in Australia.
  • Operate an independent surveillance programme where cables are taken from the market and tested for safety and compliance to the relevant Australian Standards thus granting purchasers of ACI members’ cable a higher level of compliance assurance.

The Organisation has several Members who are engaged in the manufacture and/or sale of electrical cables in Australia and who have signed up to and agreed to abide by, the ACI Constitution and Charter. Membership of the ACI is open to any manufacturer who sells electrical cable into the Australian market. Membership is also open to resellers who sell cable in the Australian market and who have a direct link with the cable manufacturer in order that they may satisfy their obligations under the ACI Charter.

Full details of the operation of the ACI may be found by visiting the ACI website:
