The new electrical safety report adheres to AS/NZS 3019 section 2, the standard needed to complete inspections according to new Victorian tenancy laws.

Under the new residential tenancy regulations, the rental provider must ensure that an electrical safety check has been carried out on all electrical installations, fittings, and appliances that a renter is being provided.

    • The check of all electrical installations, fixtures, and fittings must be carried out in accordance with section 4 of AS/NZS 3019.
    • Electrical contractors will have to prepare an electrical safety report in accordance with section 2 of AS/NZS 3019.
