What are the Regulations in WA?

The test and tag regulations in WA are pretty simple.

  • Items tested must be tagged: When the test is complete, the item must be labelled in accordance with AS/NZS 3012:2003. The date of the next test must be clearly marked.
  • You must test your equipment at regular intervals: The frequency of testing depends on the potential danger. On a construction site, for example, you must check your equipment every six months. In an office environment, the interval between tests increases to five years.
  • Not just anyone can perform the tests: The person conducting the tests must be well-versed in the regulations.

Test and Tag FAQs

What if I only have one or two items to be tested?

Call or visit us. We’ll test the item for you.

How Often Should I Test the Equipment?

That depends on the industry. If you’re not sure, give us a call, and we’ll tell you. Periods range from six months to five years.

Does a Residual Current Device Need to Be Tested?

Most definitely. These devices ensure that the amount of energy that goes in matches the output. If there’s a mismatch, the RCD trips the circuit so that the person using the device stays safe. RCDs can wear out and malfunction over time, so we recommend regular tests.
