8-046(1) Electrical equipment and circuits shall be identified for safety purposes by position, colour, number, letter, nameplate, label, design or equivalent means and the method of identification shall be uniform throughout the electrical utility system.

8-046(2) Identification marks shall not be placed on removable covers or casings where the interchanging of these removable parts would result in incorrect identification.
