Appliances to be inspected

You need to get the following appliances tested and tagged according to the Australian code:

  • Hard wired devices
  • Appliances that require dismantling for following safety measures
  • Appliances with height beyond 2.5 meters
  • The sample items that are used for window dressing
  • New appliances of a warehouse outlet


We begin by thoroughly inspecting your appliances visually. This step is very crucial as it helps to identify any visible problems, faults, and damages to the equipment body, cords, and power supply. Identifying and eliminating these problems even before they start helping to maintain equipment and increase their lifetime.

Electrical Testing

The next step involves the electrical testing of your appliances. The circuitry and internal components of the machinery is tested using advanced tools and testers to figure if everything is working fine or not. This helps figure out the electrical issues right in time before they get blown out of proportion and cause accidents.


Once tested, the appliances are then tagged with all the important details and findings of the testing step. Any faulty equipment is removed at this point and sent for repair or servicing. All the rest of the appliances are tagged with device information and re-test date so that you don’t run out of your compliance and schedule your next test accordingly.

You will be provided with a compliance certificate along with an expiry date. Your business can stay compliant for as long as the certificate doesn’t expire. You can always schedule a re-test before expiry so that you always stay compliant and no disruption to your business is ever caused.
