So this year new rules for us: New extension cords and multi boxes do not have to be tested, providing you can produce the shop receipt to prove they are new. Everything else has to be done.

The one show we attended outside Wellington was fun but involved being a fair bit out of pocket, so I'm really glad that the committee is doing the tagging for us here so home turf doesn't get expensive too!
