A competent person as defined in the Health & Safety Act 1992 must do the testing of your plug-in electrical equipment. This is a person who has acquired through training, qualification or experience, or a combination of these, the knowledge and skills enabling that person to correctly perform a task. For the testing of plug-in electrical equipment this means a person who can safely and correctly carry out the inspections and tests described in the relevant joint Australia & NZ Standard, AS/NZS 3760:2010 (including Amendment 1) - In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment.  The person carrying out the inspections and tests must know what to look at, what to look for and what to do.  A full page brief including required competency, training information, testing processes and reference to current standards can be found in the members area tool kit.
