Laws introduced in 2009 require all home sellers (before sale) and landlords to install at least two RCDs, protecting all power points and lighting circuits.
RCD’S Save Lives
RCDs monitor the flow of electricity from the main switchboard and prevent electrocution by cutting the electricity supply if an imbalance in the current is detected, thus meaning that a person could be used as the return path to earth (getting an electric shock). By installing at least two RCDs, the property’s circuits can be divided evenly. This ensures some light and power remain if one RCD operates and also minimizes faulty operation. All properties constructed from the year 2000 should already have two RCDs fitted.
Renting a Home
Landlords must arrange for at least two RCDs to be installed on the switchboard at their rental premises to protect all powerpoint and lighting circuits. If RCDs are not fitted then tenants should contact the managing agent or landlord and request that two RCDs be installed. Property Managers should also check that RCDs are installed in their rental properties.
Number of RCD’s
The regulations require two RCDs be installed on the main switchboard. In some cases, to reduce the number of circuits affected by the operation of any one RCD, homeowners may consider having more than two RCDs fitted.
Testing the RCD
All RCDs have a test button, which should be pressed every three months. Pushing the test button simulates an earth leakage fault and indicates whether or not the RCD is operating correctly. Electric clocks and timers will require resetting after each test.
Penalties of up to $15,000 for individuals and up to $100,000 for a body corporate may apply if the regulations are breached.
