Certification FAQs

A Patient Treatment Area is any space where electrical equipment is used to evaluate, treat, or monitor a patient. Specifically, it is an area within a medical facility such as an operating theatre, or any room used for recovery, exams, minor procedures, intensive care, or coronary care.

Read our extensive guide on Patient Treatment Areas.

In general, any medical, dental, or health-care facility requires certification of their Patient Treatment Areas. 

he certification process begins before an electrical installation is brought into service. The area and all components of the system are inspected, tested, and verified.

Your electrical installer will complete a “Statement of Conformity with AS/NZ 3003” to document whether the installation is for a new area or repairs/alterations to an existing area, and what type of protected area is in question. They check that each area has the proper number of socket-outlets required for medical personnel to carry out their duties. Additionally, they document their company information, the location of the facility, and the date the work was completed.

Certification is required for any new patient treatment area. A routine inspection is also required by AS/NZ 3003 every 6 to 12 months. Inspection is a prerequisite for alterations and recertification.

Safety for cardiac protected and body protected electrical areas is a serious matter: failure to comply with AS/NZ 3003 can result in life-threatening risks to patients.
