What type of equipment is tested and tagged?

Any device that has a flexible cable, a removable plug and is not low voltage (not exceeding 50V). This includes extension leads, cord sets and portable safety switch.

Generally, electrical appliances can be classed as either:

Class I – this is an earthed appliance i.e. kettles, irons and toasters

Class II – double insulated appliances, i.e. most electric drills and hair dryers.

New equipment doesn’t need to be tested – just visually inspected and tagged.
