Are there any specific colours for tags?

While AS/NZS 3760 does specify requirements for the testing and tagging of electrical equipment, including the use of tags, it does not specifically mandate tag colours for industries outside of construction, mining, or demolition. AS3012 is referred for the recommended colours (RGBY)

However, individual workplaces or industries may have their own policies or guidelines regarding tag colours for electrical equipment. So, while AS/NZS 3760 itself might not mandate tag colours for industries other than construction, mining, or demolition, it’s essential to check with relevant workplace regulations or industry standards to ensure compliance.
