Testing of electrical work equipment (DGUV V3)

Why do I have to test my electrical equipment?

DGUV V3 (§5 testing) stipulates that electrical equipment must be tested by the contractor at specified intervals. The purpose of this regulation is to reduce the risk of fire, because defective devices are detected and sorted out during the inspection. Testing can, in some circumstances, save a company’s existence, as only about 23% of all companies are fully operational again after a fire incident. More than 30% of all fire accidents are due to electrotechnical defects.

Please also consider your insurance coverage, because many insurance companies include testing as a mandatory part of their policies.

When must electrical work equipment be tested?

Electrical work equipment must be tested after installation and before first use. This is required, among other things, by Section 14, Paragraph 1 of the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health.

Why is PARTSLIFE my competent partner?
