Test and tag are a process of inspecting, testing, and tagging electrical equipment to ensure that it is safe to use. It is a legal requirement in many countries, including Australia, which is aimed at reducing the risk of electrical accidents caused by faulty or damaged equipment.

So, what can you expect from the test and tag process? During the test and tag process, a qualified technician will visually inspect the equipment for any obvious damage or defects. They will then perform electrical tests to check for issues such as insulation resistance, earth continuity, and polarity. Once the equipment has passed the tests, it will be tagged with a label indicating the date of the test, the name of the technician who conducted the test, and the next due date for testing.
