2 Testing and tagging of newly purchased electrical equipment
When the electrical equipment is new, the supplier is deemed responsible for the initial electrical safety of the equipment. New equipment need not be tested but should be examined by the principal or their delegate for obvious damage and be issued with a ‘New to Service’ tag.
The following information should be included on the tag:
- wording ‘new to service’
- pass / fail
- date of entry to service
- date when next test is due
