Posted on Monday, November 23rd, 2009

The draft of DR 3760, In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment is available to comment on. The closing date for comment on this draft Standard is 12 February 2010.

This draft is a revision of AS/NZS 3760:2003, and specifies procedures for the safety inspection and testing of low voltage single phase and polyphase electrical equipment, connected to the electrical supply by a flexible cord and/or connecting device.

This draft also includes fixed RCDs and portable inverters.

NOTE — Additional requirements for portable generators are covered by AS/NZS 3012.

[Hint: This draft will look VERY much like the final version which will cost you abut $100 to buy, so it’s well worth downloading – even if you don’t intend to make a comment.]

You can download a copy of this draft from the ALIA web site.
