Several lightning protection system codes and standards define minimum dimensions for the components of a grounding system. These standards are designed to protect buildings and other inhabited or otherwise critical facilities.

Practical minimums are based on field experience and indicate what is needed to protect the installed equipment in a cost-effective way during the foreseeable technical lifetime, typically a few decades, taking into account local regulations. To ensure proper operation of the grounding system, periodic inspection and maintenance is needed.
