Our trusted team of A grade electricians are experienced testers and taggers and ensure all compliance and documentation is in line.

What appliances are required to be tested and tagged?

It is required by law that any electrical item that is plugged in or connected to a wall socket or generator must be tested. This includes such items as PC’s, laptop charges, phone chargers, lamps, fridges and printers as well as tools such as drills and cutters.

It is important to note that whilst almost all electrical appliances are required to be tested and tagged it is the environment that they work in that determines the test frequency of each of these items, this test frequency can vary from 3 to 6 and 12 months respectively.

If you have purchased new electrical items since the last time your local Millerwatts electrician was on site for testing and tagging this item does not need to be immediately tested prior to use in your business. However, you should note that these new items need to be tested and tagged at your next scheduled test and tag service.

Be Prepared

Millerwatts encourages our clients to keep a log of new items that require testing and tagging so they can be easily identified at the time or service and will not be missed therefore jeopardising compliance.
