Electrical Appliances Test and Tag Frequency Explained

Are you aware of the Test and Tag Frequency requirement?  Otherwise known as intervals, this refers to how long is needed before an electrical appliance must be tested and tagged.

Covered under the NZS 3760 Standard, it makes recommendations for electrical testing and tagging frequencies via ‘Table 4’ and should be seen at the very least as a minimum requirement.

Here are the main intervals in NZ you should be aware of:

INTERVALS

ENVIRONMENT

3 months

Construction, building and demolition

6 months

Factories, production and warehouse

12 months

Where equipment/cord is prone to flexing (or open to abuse) i.e. schools, offices, office kitchen

5 yearly

Where equipment/cord is not prone to flexing (or open to abuse) i.e. server rooms

NB: For hire equipment, the electrical equipment needs to be inspected prior to being hired, as well as being tested and tagged every three months.
