between the owner, architect" engineer, 'and equipment manufacturer'
responsible for its design, procurement, installation, operation and mainten-
ance, so that the plands procured to suit the duty, location and installation
conditions under which the switchgear will, operate. This information
should iriclude any special building features, such as access doors, lifting
beams, oil pumps, cable trenches, foundation details, ventilating arrange-
ment, weather conditions, etc, which may be desirable (see also Part II
and III of this standard) as also the incorporation of any optional features
'in the switchgear.

ment regarding the rating of equipment which may be connected. to' the
supply should be ascertained from the supply authority.
3.2 Transport Facilities
3.2.1 The engineer should obtain well in advance all relevant information
about the overall dimensions, weight/' for \ransport, installation, etc,
of the switchgear in ,question. Special precautions may be essential for the
protection of insulation duringshipJIlent and prior to energizing to prevent
moisture absorption due to rain, snow or condensation. These may include
shipment of insulating parts in oil to prevent contamination. Appropriate
instructions should be given in this regard. When the circuit-breaker is

4.1.2 If considered necessary the local authorities concerned in the
administration of the rules and regulations in the matter of the layout of
the installation of the switchgear should be consulted in regard to the
rules and reguli!tions that may be applicable.
4.1.3 The electr;ical installation shall be carried out only by authorized
persons competent to undertake such work under the rules and regulations
that may be in force in different States.

4.2.1 It is essential that the entire earthing system should be
with the maximum available earth-fault current. This
should be particularly checked whenever any plan' extensions resulting
in higher fa'ult levels are made to ensure that the existing connections are
sliitable for the increased earth-fault current.
