A self-start Network Access Permit (NAP) is a type of authorisation that grants users greater control over their network access privileges. Specifically, it enables the applicant or user to start and stop their own live periods in Urban Access, our permit to work system.
Without a self-start NAP, users typically need to contact the Urban Utilities Control Room to request access to the network, and to request that their access be terminated when they are finished using it. With a self-start NAP, however, users are empowered to manage their own access to the network. This means that they can start and stop their own live periods in Urban Access whenever they need to, without needing to go through the Control Room. Currently self-start is only available for permits that Urban Utilities deem to have low operational risks.
