PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING ACROSS THE NORTH EAST
Newcastle upon Tyne – Tyne and Wear – County Durham – Northumberland
DRA PAT Testing Limited specialise in the inspection and testing of electrical equipment to make sure its safe to use. Primarily done in workplaces, schools and rental properties we now operate more than ever for people working from home. Often referred to as PAT testing or portable appliance testing, we are checking electrical equipment (fitted with a plug) to make sure it is safe to use.
Sometimes an appliance needs a repair, (most of the time we can do this without you incurring any additional costs) and we provide everyone with a fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report. A portable appliance is every electrical appliance with a plug (or intended to have one by its manufacturer)
We offer a very competitive pricing structure for all wherever you are based in the North East of England (Tyne and Wear, Co. Durham, Northumberland and Teesside), and cover all company sectors including office based businesses, schools, rental property, hotels, caravan parks, shops, salons etc.
If you require assistance with your PAT testing, want a price or to make arrangements for it to be carried out you can contact us via our PAT testing quote form, email or call us. We will be happy to discuss your requirements, and provide you with assistance or guidance if you have questions. We can test just one item or thousands, do it as a one-off or set you up on a long term programme, whatever your requirements we can help; without any contracts. We also provide you with a fully bespoke NO OBLIGATION quotation.

8 ways regular PAT Testing helps you
PAT testing is important because it confirms whether or not an appliance is safe to use (by inspecting and testing); the engineer will usually carry out repairs if there is a fault (maintenance) and it provides you with a PAT Testing Certificate (records) – all of which help you to comply with UK workplace regulations and insurance, including..
✅ Regular electrical inspection and testing helps you ensure electrical equipment is safe
✅ A PAT engineer will assess the suitability of an appliance for the environment it is being used in to help you comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
✅ PAT testing records can be used to demonstrate compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
✅ Regular PAT testing helps you to comply with The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
✅ Regular PAT tests in rental property help you comply with The Housing Act 2004 (England and Wales)
✅ PAT tests before the start of a tenancy help a landlord comply with The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s guidance
✅ Regular PAT tests help you comply with The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
✅ If the plug of an appliance doesn’t meet the Plugs and sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994 we will change it for one that does.
