The CQC requires periodic PAT Testing but does it specify annual PAT tests?

Based on the assumption that low risk equipment in low risk environments don’t need annual PAT testing there presents an opportunity to reduce your costs when it comes to electrical safety.

An option would be to take all the low risk equipment (computers etc) in offices (not consultation/treatment rooms) and extend the intervals between tests to 24 months initially then providing the risks remain the same and there are no concerns, look to extend that period further.

We don’t recommend periods of up to 48 months without any checks so would recommend inspections after 12 or 24 months – we can talk to you further about these options.
