Test and tag of electrical equipment records

Electrical cords and leads on portable amusement devices require testing and tagging.

All testing and tagging of electrical equipment, including RCD’s (safety switch) must be undertaken by a competent person at least every 12 months.

Organisers should request that suppliers provide a register of electrical equipment showing records of testing being undertaken within the 12 months prior to the show.

More information can be found in the Managing electrical risks in the workplace code of practice.
