How often should I get my appliances tested and tagged?

If you are running a business, whether it is in construction or a simple office building, you will need to follow certain test and tag regulations for your electrical appliances. AS/NZS 3760 is the Australian Standard that covers the test and tag industry, and the regulations your business needs to be aware of.

Each state has a different regulatory body, however there is a national standard they all follow. For a brief run down of test and tag testing frequency:

  • Every 5 years for objects that don’t move
  • Every 12 months for office equipment (eg., monitors)
  • Every 6 months for items that move
  • And every 3 months for the construction sector (eg., work tools)

For a more specific explanation of test and tag regulations, it is best to speak with a trained professional. They can guide you through what electrical safety must be conducted throughout your business and cut through the confusion.
