Is testing and tagging required by law?

For mining, construction or demolition sites, portable electrical equipment and RCDs are required to be tested and tagged.

For all other workplaces, RCD’s are required to be kept in good working order and tested regularly. They are not legally required to have electrical equipment tagged, however, they should be able to demonstrate that a maintenance program is in place.

Many businesses find that the easiest way to manage this is to have their equipment inspected and tagged regularly.
