Default PAT testing !!!!

Has anyone got any advice on taking my electrical test equipment over to Oz if i ever get the visa. I was thinking that my multi-function tester will be useful but what about my PAT tester??? (If i get adapter leads to use) Your views would be grately appreciated.

"tag and test"

requirements are very simple compared to the uk

http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/electrica...urse/index.htm

to be honest all the testing, even on installations is in my opinion of a much much lower standard than the uk,

for example

http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/electrica...ting/index.htm

if youve read that you`ll see that its acceptable to test rcds via the button
wtf does that prove?? that the rcd works when given a dead short ??
no tripping current test or even speed of tripping test required
just push the bloody button


typical test cert

http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/pdf/eso/t...5_template.pdf

you dont have to supply details of the installation, you could put new sockets and sign and it woud comply


testing

now your probably wondering wtf
i only asked if i should bring my pat tester, the idea was to give you some insight as to whats regullary done regarding testing in aus so you can make your own discision re what to and what not to bring

one thing definatly chuck you conduit vice ( ive broght mine total waste of time ) ditto pyro tools, aussies wouldnt recognise mi if you whipped with tyhe stuff,

hope tis has helped

regards steve
