Before planned works can be authorised, the submission of the Declaration of Work (DT) and then the Declaration of Intention to Commence Work (DICT) guarantees you have all the essential information to keep your workers safe.
Intended to prevent any possible damage and to guarantee the integrity of networks, the Declaration of Intention to Commence Work (DICT) is mandatory before any work near to underground or overhead networks can begin.
To encourage safety in our region, we promise to:
respond to planned work declarations and DICTs within a deadline of 9 days when sent through the post, or 7 days when sent digitally;
to provide information about the positions of our high pressure gas transport pipelines;
to set out the precautions to take when working close to pipes;
to provide, free of charge, the marking or staking out of pipeline(s) in the area covered by the work.
