Pat Testing or Portable Appliance Testing is an important part of any health & safety policy.
This site is intended as a guide to both the legal implications and to the technical requirements.
Pat Testing is recommended:
The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependant upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.
The Institution of Electrical Engineers publish the â€œCode of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipmentâ€? (ISBN: 0-85296-776-4) . This guide forms the basis for portable appliance testing in the U.K.
