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.

To comply with the UK’s Health and Safety regulations, and to ensure your insurance policy is valid, you need to be able to prove that electrical equipment is safe to use; the best way to do this is to have a PAT test carried out on them.
