Electrical Appliance Testing & Tagging Process

The integrity of electrical appliance assets is determined by subjecting each asset to testing as required by the standard. Using the latest equipment (Portable Appliance Tester), EPASS carries out the following testing procedures, including:

  • Physical inspection
  • Insulation Tests
  • Earth circuit Test
  • Continuity Test
  • Functionality Test
  • Run / Leakage Test
  • Polarity wire Test
  • Visual Inspections Include As per (AS 3760)
  • Check for obvious external damage
  • Check defects-accessories, plugs or socket outlets
  • Check defects on connectors
  • Check supply cords
  • No exposed inner cords, external sheath not cut abraded or damaged
  • Check cords are not tangled or exposed for tripping
  • All flexible cords are securely anchored; and
  • Power boards: Indicator for ‘maximum load’ is visible and legible.
