Why do I need the Premier report?

The Premier is the search level required for PAS 128* QL-D and HSG47 compliance. This is the first stage in a four part process for full utility discovery enabling you and your contractors to plan, design and work safely.

Desktop utility search greatly reduces the chance of dangerous and expensive cable strikes or damage to other utility assets. We classify the search responses received in terms of their proximity to the enquiry area using a red, amber and green system (RAG rating) enabling the reader to quickly pinpoint utilities of concern.
