Government Regulations AS/NZS 3760:2010
National Work Place Healthy and Safety regulations state that all equipment used in an environment in which the normal use of electrical equipment exposes the equipment to operating conditons that are likely to result in damage to the equipment or a reduction in its expected life span must be tested and tagged.

The environment includes conditions that involve exposure to moisture, heat, vibration, mechanical, damage, corrosive chemicals or dust and is more commonly known as a hostile environment. With accordance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 all items in a hostile environment must be inspected visually, tested and tagged.
