Electrical Appliance Testing and Tagging is necessary in New Zealand to protect your staff and the public and adhere to strict occupational health and safety guidelines (AS/NZS 3760). The process of having your items test and tagged will involve qualified personnel attending site to complete the testing and record the results.

Why Test and Tag?
Testing & tagging is compulsory in New Zealand to protect your staff and the public and to adhere to strict occupational health and safety guidelines (AS/NZS 3760). The owner or manager of a premises or business has a legal and ethical obligation to your staff and clients to provide regular appliance test and tagging.
Test & Tag schedules
The nature of your workplace will determine how often you need to undertake appliance testing and tagging services but you must ensure all plug-in electrical equipment and extension leads be visually inspected regularly for wear and mechanical damage and tested in accordance with AS/NZS 3760 for earth continuity and insulation resistance or leakage current.
As a general rule, an appliance that forms part of a hazardous environment will need to be tested more regularly than one that does not. It is up to the appliance tester to determine where the environment and item should be assessed under the relevant Standards and or OSH guidelines.
