C524:2013 provides guidance on the basic principles of installation, maintenance and safety of external telecommunications networks; describes the minimum requirements for electrical, structural and network reliability and employee/public safety under specified conditions.

The Code was reconfirmed in 2023 and the next review is scheduled to occur in 2028.
