Test & Tagging

Test & Tagging

It is a venue requirement that ALL electrical equipment that comes on site is tested and tagged in accordance with the State Health & Safety Regulations to meet Australian certified standards. This includes mobile phone chargers, laptops chargers, lighting and electrical equipment – see below for further examples.

This applies to all contractors working on site and exhibitors who bring in electrical leads and appliances for their stands during exhibitions. It also applies to demo stock which must be tagged with a New to Service tag in order for it to be used on site.

Below are some examples of electrical equipment which must be tagged and tested before you come on site

  • Mobile phone chargers
  • Laptop chargers
  • Television power leads
  • Extension cords
  • Power leads for all building equipment including drills, saws and transformers
  • Cooking equipment including microwaves, blenders, juicers and electric fry pans and fridges
  • New or demo stock
  • All lighting
  • Speaker systems

It is the exhibitor and/or stand builders responsibility to ensure all electrical stock is tested and tagged prior to arrival on site. A testing and tagging service will be available onsite for a small quantity of items on each stand. Costs for testing and tagging will be applied to all electrical orders taken. If you require a large quantity of items tested and tagged please notify the Operations Department so we can make the appropriate resources available.

If you require electrical items to be test and tagged please contact Moreton Hire

International Exhibitors
International exhibitors are reminded that all electrical equipment brought in from overseas must be certified to meet Australian Standards. Any equipment used on site that doesn’t meet Australian standards will be removed from the show floor and only returned at the completion of the show.
