At K&M Electrical we provide painless, affordable test & tag servicing.

Test & tag is the common name for safety testing of electrical appliances (anything that plugs into the wall). It’s a great idea to get your home appliances tested for family peace-of-mind, but in commercial or industrial contexts it’s an outright legal responsibility.

This means as a business owner, contractor or manager, you need to have a certified electrician issue a current, valid safety ‘tag’ for everything with a flexible cord, including extension cords and multi-boxes.

Test & tag service ensures compliance with the Electricity Act 1992, NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992, NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992 and WorkSafe regulations.


Pricing from $4.50 per tag, with a minimum of 20 items tested at a time. We will provide repair quotes for any failed items.

Frequency of Testing

The duration of validity of any particular safety tag depends on the environmental and risk factors it faces under the WorkSafe safety standards. We’re well versed in the different factors that affect testing frequency, so give us a call at K&M Electrical to discuss your test & tag requirements.

Summary of Requirements

Building or construction site and other hostile environments 3 Months
Workshops, factories, place of work and clean equipment 6 Months
Environments where the appliance or cord may be flexed or damaged 12 Months
Bedroom areas of rest homes, hotels, motels and hostels 2 Years
Environments where the appliance or cord will not be flexed or damaged 5 Years
If an appliance is relocated, then the new environment test requirements apply  

Once the appliance gets tested, a tag will be attached to the cord stating the date, re-test date, and the tester’s details. Here’s an example:
