Residual current devices need to be regularly tested to ensure they remain in correct working order as they will only provide ongoing protection if operational.
Our RCD testing includes:
After our testing is completed, any faulty items are reported immediately, and repairs are arranged if required. All test results are fully documented and supplied upon completion.
The frequency of their testing is outlined in AS/NZS 3760 Table 4. This table outlines the in-service safety inspection, testing method and frequency.

Our other compliance testing services include:
Emergency Light Testing
All emergency and exit lights must undergo a 90-minute discharge test of the battery every 6 months as stated under the AS2293.2 Standard. Records of all tests and the subsequent actions taken must be kept for compliance purposes.
Test and Tagging
Test and tagging in Brisbane and test and tagging on the Gold Coast the process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment for safety in accordance with the test & tag frequencies outlined in the AS/NZS3760 Standard.
The process for test and tag is completed in two stages. First the equipment is visually inspected for any damage, then it is electrically tested to ensure there are no internal faults.
Thermal Imaging – Infrared Thermography
Thermal imaging in Brisbane and thermal imaging on the Gold Coast find hot spots caused by loose connections and defects in components. It detects problem areas so that failure or damage can be avoided ahead of time.

What is RCD Testing?
RCD testing is a type of electrical safety testing that is used to ensure that electrical circuits are safe to use. RCD stands for Residual Current Device, which is a safety device that is used to detect and interrupt the flow of electric current when electricity is detected at dangerous levels. RCDs are typically used in industrial and commercial settings to protect people from electrocution. RCD testing is conducted by qualified electricians who can check that the RCD is functioning correctly and that the right level of protection is in place. In some cases, RCD testing may also be required by building regulations.
RCD Testing Requirements QLD
In Queensland, all new and altered electrical work must be inspected and tested by a licensed electrician to ensure compliance with the Australian Standard. As part of this process, the electrician will carry out an RCD test to ensure that the Residual Current Device (RCD) is functioning correctly. To test the RCD, the electrician will first turn it off and then back on again. They will then measure the time it takes for the RCD to trip and make sure that it trips within 0.4 seconds. If the RCD does not trip within this time frame, it will need to be replaced.
