This document will be issued for all tendered structured cabling projects and works.

Each specification will detail UCL approved installers and vendor components as well as standards and practices which must always be followed. Under no circumstances will any alternatives from this document be allowed.

This specification will also supersede any documents issued by consultants or external designers, main contractors or other third parties.
