PAT Testing is a way of maintaining electrical appliances and it:
  • Reduces the risk of fires
  • Reduces the risk of electric shock
  • Finds dangerous and defective equipment
  • Provides records of maintanence
  • Confirms safety
  • Helps you comply with legal regulations
By law any electrical appliances provided for use in workplaces (including rental property) must maintain safe standards – PAT testing is a form of maintenance that does this.
You are not legally required to do PAT testing but you are legally required to perform the process of portable appliance testing or other maintenance methods to ensure portable electrical appliances are safe to use.
The Electricity At Work Regulations 1989 require that all electrical systems (mains wiring and appliances) maintain safe standards and undergo periodic inspections and testing to confirm safety:
  • Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for mains wiring including hard wired appliances, and
  • Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) for appliances that can be easily disconnected from the mains using a plug and socket system
