Due to the age of some buildings and perceived age of the wiring, and as electrical faults continue to account for a high number of fire losses in New Zealand, all electrical installations need regular maintenance. Switchboards wear and need replacement as time progresses, demands on the installation change, or network system upgrades affect fault levels.
To minimise the potential for such risk, it is important to have a regular inspection and maintenance programme in place.
Standard AS/NZS 3019.2007 periodic verification uses non-destructive examination methods, and verifies that your electrical installations remain in good repair. Insurance companies are increasingly using this standards and requesting Certificate of periodic verification which we at TEST&TAG can supply.
