The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka has taken measures to introduce new regulations with regard to constructing unsafe buildings in close proximity to electric cables.

Accordingly, the new rules and regulations will be implemented focusing on the minimum distance between the building and the electric cables.

If the voltage of the electric cable is less than 1000 volts, the minimum distance should be 2.4 meters.

If the voltage of the electric cables exceed that, then the distance should be increased accordingly.

The Construction of buildings without implementation of such would be considered illegal.

In the future, when providing licenses for construction, the standardized distance between the electric cables and the construction will be assessed.

All local government institutions have been notified of the new regulations.

Issuing a communiqué the PUCSL noted that a safety certificate should be obtained from the Ceylon Electricity Board or from the Lanka electricity company Pvt. Ltd as proof of compliance with the regulations.
