I have some appliances that need to be tested and tagged - how often do they have to be done, and how much will it cost?
Testing and tagging is completed to AS/NZS 3760:2010 which specifies how regularly appliances must be tested according to their type and enviroment. The shortest length is 3 monthly and this goes right through to 5 yearly (for appliances in an office enviroment). Rates start from $4.50 +GST, however often it is more cost effective (for larger numbers of items) for it to be done at an hourly rate plus travelling and the test tags.
