How Often Should Electrical Appliances be Tested and Tagged?
Standard rules pertaining to the building and mining industries require them to test and tag their electronic devices every three months. Due to unfavorable conditions from the industries that may result in flaws on the electric equipment, the need for testing and tagging the appliances is necessary. Every three months, the test and tag color are changed. According to the different lengths of time each year, this aids in grouping the tags into the same months that they fall within.
Australian Standards and regulations such as AS 3760 Standard, stipulates the frequency of test and tag as per the workplace and environment.

RCD Testing & Tagging Services
ENC Solutions Today can test both portable and fixed RCDs, which are also known as ELCBs and the Safety Switch, in Gold Coast.
The RCD Trip Time is a measurement of how long it takes the RCD to respond when a dangerous situation occurs. The RCD Test Instrument simulates a fault, and records the operating time of the RCD in milliseconds (ms). This test therefore demonstrates how quickly the RCD will respond to a dangerous situation. RCDs generally respond in under 30ms, however up to 40ms is acceptable under certain circumstances.
During the RCD Ramp Current Measurement, the RCD Test Instrument simulates an earth leakage current (which represents a dangerous fault), however this time, the instrument starts the leakage current gradually, and “ramps” the current up over say 15 seconds. The test instrument then records the earth leakage current in milliamperes (mA) at which the RCD trips. This test demonstrates how sensitive the RCD is in detecting a dangerous situation. Generally, RCDs must respond at 30mA or less, although some special RCDs are set to respond at either 10mA or 100mA
Intervals for testing specified electrical equipment
The type of work being performed determines how often specified electrical equipment is tested. Specified electrical equipment is defined by section 97 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 as electrical equipment with a current rating of not more than 20 amps*. Specified electrical equipment also includes cord extension sets and electrical portable outlet devices (EPODs). *For service or office work, specified equipment is limited to equipment that is moved during its normal use for the purpose of its use.
