6.1       Guidelines for New Equipment

Before obtaining any electrical equipment, the vendor of the equipment must assure UTMB that it meets all existing federal, state and university electrical standards. 

Consult CES or BMEE before purchasing, borrowing, leasing or accepting as a donation any piece of electrical equipment.  CES or BMEE can assist you in determining that it meets the institutionís safety policy.

After Acquisition

Immediately following delivery and before installation and use of newly acquired electrical equipment, call CES to inspect your new equipment.  No electrical equipment can be put into service without an appropriately colored (green, yellow or blue) electrical safety label.
