AS/NZS 3760:2010 is a standard created by Standards Australia that outlines a testing method and frequency for electrical appliances.[1] It was created to minimize electrical hazards in the workplace. Appliances are inspected for damage, and various measurements are made to the appliances' earth continuity, insulation, polarity, and physical condition. After testing has determined a pass, a tag is attached to the appliance lead indicating when it was tested, when the next test is due, and a tracking code. Retesting intervals of equipment can vary from 3 months to 5 years, depending of the environment where the equipment is located.

This standard is used in Australia and New Zealand. Colloquially, the standard is often referred to as Test and Tag or portable appliance testing (PAT). Testing can be done by anyone deemed competent by training or experience. It does not require a registered electrician. Many businesses are required to maintain records of their compliance with AS/NZS 3760:2010.

It is a requirement under Work Health and Safety Legislation that portable devices are free from defect. Compliance to AS/NZS 3760:2010 is one method of demonstrating Work Health and Safety Legislation compliance. For Medical Devices, the standard required is AS/NZS3551 as medical devices undergo a different set of electrical safety requirements.

The current regulation is AS/NZS 3760:2010.[2] There is an amendment: AS/NZS 3760:2010/Amdt 1:2011.[3]
