Portable Appliance Testing (PAT

In addition to the Electrical Periodic Inspection and Test Reports landlords are required to have all electrical appliances they have provided tested. This means all electrical items with a removable plug such as a fridge, freezer, washing machine etc must be regularly tested to ensure the safety of appliances and the connections.

What do the PAT tests involve?

The testing consists of two separate activities; a visual inspection to check for damage and poor electrical standards and a series of instrument tests to check for less obvious electrical faults.

Once an item has been checked a sticker will be placed on the item stating the date the check was undertaken, by whom and when the next check is due. You will then be provided with an electronic list of the items that have been checked advising which items have passed the safety check and which have failed and why. All Portable Appliance Testing certificates are computer generated and can be sent electronically to you, your insurance company, mortgage provider or letting agent etc.
