PAT Test Certificate
For every client and every job we provide a fully comprehensive PAT Testing Certificate Report.
We provide every client with a 4 or 5 part record:
- A front cover
- A guidance document telling you important information
- The PAT testing Certificate
- The itemised PAT testing report showing all items tested, identification numbers with descriptions and further information, and the results of the tests completed
- Information on failed items (if any failed)
The report is sent to you as one pdf document attached to an email address.
A PAT test certificate is issued to business owners (and others who get PAT done), after their electrical appliances have been tested. The certificate confirms that the company the certificate has been issued to is being compliant with the regulations by having their appliances tested regularly, to prevent damage arising or risks increasing.
The certificate is evidence that the responsible person is taking steps to ensure safety of users of equipment.
DRA PAT Testing limited will come to you to test your appliances, and when satisfied that your equipment is safe, will issue a PAT testing certificate.
The PAT testing report lists all appliances tested, each with their own unique identification number – the same number that is on the label we attached to the appliance after testing it.
The results obtained by the tests that took place are shown next to the appliance, these include; result of the visual inspection (arguably the most important part of the test), result of the earth test carried out on appliances that require an earth for safety, result of the insulation test which is carried out on all appliances with exposed metal parts, and the result of the Polarity test which is carried out on power cords that have an earth wire (e.g. extension and IEC leads). Other Tests may be carried out that we don’t show the results for, such as if a socket tester or voltage meter has been used.
The results are broken down into locations at your site, for example, separating the main office from the meeting room, and from the kitchens.
Additionally we may carry out a thermal survey on a server system that can’t be turned off. We will confirm that the appliance is safe, to the best of our knowledge from the survey but cannot confirm it is safe internally as we just don’t know without unplugging it and testing it fully.
If any appliances couldn’t be repaired by our engineer they would fail the test, and this would be recorded in the failures report, included.
There is also an overall PAT testing certificate provided that shows that you are compliant with the regulations; this is something you may want to display on your health and safety board.
The PAT Testing Certificate must show the address where the testing took place, the name and address of the company that did the testing, the date of the test and it is recommended but not essential, that an expiry date be shown. After all the results of the test are only as good as the time they are done; the tester can’t guarantee the appliance will stay in that condition until X date.
The PAT testing certificate doesn’t show the list of appliances or their results, that is for the report; the certificate is an official document that provides proof that appliances have been tested so that business owners can confirm their compliance with the regulations.
