These guys were recommended to us and they came in recently to do the PAT Testing. The service was first class and report very professionally presented in an easy to understand format. It is rare I give 5 stars in a review however in this case it is thoroughly deserved and would recommend DRA PAT Testing Limited to any organisation ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Efa Owens, Acquisition Manager
Excellent, friendly and efficient service. We have a lot of staff that work flexibly and Richard was happy to pop back at a later date to test their equipment which we hadn’t initially mentioned. Would recommend DRA to any organisation that needs appliance testing carried out. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Julie Dixon, Company Secretary
We are very impressed with your service, everything very professional and as you promised. As a small business we find it hard to find reliable companies to deal with, it makes a refreshing change to come across a company with similar ideals to us – a fair job at a fair price with pleasant employees and proper paperwork! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

PAT Testing is a necessary part of Health and Safety
PAT testing (formerly Portable Appliance Testing or Portable Appliance Checking) is the recognised term for the process of inspection and testing of electrical equipment; a necessary measure to confirm that electrical appliances are safe. In order to comply with UK legal regulations (such as ‘Electricity at Work’) all electrical equipment provided by a business (organisation, company, self employed, etc.) must be maintained to be safe for continued use, and the business must be able to provide evidence that this is the case.
Inspection and Testing covers all electrical systems including the installation and the appliances; to confirm the installation is safe you need an Electrical Installation Certificate Report, and for the appliances you need a PAT Testing Certificate Report. We can provide both of these.
Carrying out inspections and tests on a regular basis is the best way to make sure your installation or equipment is safe to continue using, as the inspection will flag up any need for further maintenance to be carried out, as required by Health and Safety.
