Why do I need to do testing?

Testing on all installations that you work on is a minimum requirement stated in the Electrical Regulations. The reason we do testing is to be sure that the installation and fittings are electrically safe. All work completed must be tested to prove safety before and / or after livening.

Testing procedures and requirements are listed in the Electrical Regulations and they can be found --- Section 8 of the AS/NZS 3000:2007 (for testing of installations) and AS/NZS 3760 (for testing of appliances)
