FAQ: What is PAT testing?

Portable Appliance testing or PAT testing is the process of examining an electrical appliance to ensure it is safe for use. Most defects are visually identifiable but others can only be found with rigourous testing.
 A portable appliance is an item that can be moved and usually unplugged from a power supply. It can be something as small as a kettle or as big as a free standing fridge.

FAQ: Is PAT testing a legal requirement?

You are legally required to keep any electrical items that have the potential to cause injury maintained to a safe standard. The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 state that all electrical appliances provided as part of the tenancy must be safe when they are first supplied for use.

FAQ: Does PAT Testing apply to me?

Where a landlord provides an electrical appliance as part of a tenancy, the law expects the appliance will be maintained in a safe condition that will not cause harm to the tenant. PAT testing is always best practice for landlords.

FAQ: How do you do PAT testing?

We use a combination of visual inspection and testing to examine an appliance. We are looking for electrical flaws, damaged cables and whether the item is fit for purpose.
