TIA Issues Call for Interest on New Project for Generic Telecommunications Bonding and Grounding (Earthing) for Customer Premises

Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation                                            

Arlington, VA (October 25, 2018) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR- 42.3 Engineering Committee Telecommunications Administration, Pathways, Spaces, Bonding and Grounding has issued a call for interest for document TIA-607-D initially titled “Generic Telecommunications Bonding and Grounding (Earthing) for Customer Premises.”

TR-42.3 is developing guidelines that specify requirements for a generic telecommunications bonding and grounding infrastructure and its interconnection to electrical systems and telecommunications systems.

This Standard may also be used as a guide for the renovation or retrofit of existing systems. Revision is needed to incorporate an addendum, to update references and to harmonize with addendum to ISO/IEC 30129.

TIA is actively seeking interest from user/general interest community. Stakeholders may include, but are not limited to architects, installers, building owners, electrical inspectors, electrical contractors, engineers, MEP firms, and telecommunications contractors, designers and consultants.

For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Marta Soncodi at To join the TR-42 engineering committee submit a TIA Engineering Committee Application today.

A major function of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is the writing and maintenance of voluntary industry standards and specifications. These activities are carried out by the volunteer members of TIA engineering committees. Recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee are available on TIA’s public engineering committee pages.
