Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENTS

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Determine inspection reporting requirements 

1.1 Determine the inspection reporting standard and special inspection and reporting requirements of the client or asset owner from specifications and instructions.

1.2 Obtain plans and maps of assets to be inspected and identify relevant asset data.

1.3 Seek clarification of inspection reporting requirements from the client/asset owner for unusual or non-routine inspections.

1.4 Verify the competence of operators undertaking the inspection.

2. Review video images, data and reports from inspections 

2.1 Check video records of inspections.

2.2 Compile documentation from inspection and check for completeness and accuracy.

2.3 Recognise unsatisfactory video images and other non-compliant data and submit non-compliance reports to the operator.

2.4 Label and reference inspection information.

3. Identify and code defects and other features from video images of conduit inspection 

3.1 Identify and code structural defects, service conditions and other features of the conduit.

3.2 Record asset and inspection data using appropriate software.

3.3 Investigate and report unrecognisable defects, service conditions or other features.

3.4 Identify a conduit at risk of imminent failure and communicate details to the system operator/asset owner.

3.5 Confirm defects or malfunctioning of maintenance holes, pits or other access structures with the operator and report.

4. Prepare conduit inspection reports for client 

4.1 Compile inspection reports and present to the client.

4.2 Follow inspection video and data security procedures.
