Welcome to Port Test and Tag's blog page, this is our two cents worth on electrical safety and compliance, appliance safety, general standards of test and taggers (whether they be "qualified" or "competent"), you'll find our take on reported incidents also.


We'll add posts from time to time, so do keep checking here to find out more about test and tag, the electrical test and tag standard AS/NZS3760:2010.


As they come along, we'll also add recall notices for electrical appliances, we'll include items that have been recalled in Australia, which may have been sold here.


If you have any questions on test and tag generally, test and tag machines,  or the electrical test and tag standard AS/NZS3760:2010 or the Construction and Demolition Electrical Standard AS/NZS3012:2010 just flick us an email, and we'll provide the answer here or steer you in the right direction if you wish to keep it confidential. 


If you are concerned that you have been the victim of a test and tag cheater, Port Test and Tag will audit your test results looking for signs that your test and tag hasn't been done correctly
