Portable Appliance Testing

Portable appliance testing or PAT Testing is the process of checking electrical appliances for safety.

What does it involve?

A combination of a visual inspection and testing.

Why do I need to have my appliances tested?

To ensure that the appliances in your property are safe. For landlords it is a good way to ensure and prove they are meeting their legal obligations to maintain high standards of electrical safety in their rented property.

How long will it take to complete?

The report will typically take around 1 – 2 hours to complete depending on the amount of appliances and the size of the property.

The Test’s outcome?

Upon completion of the inspection and testing we will issue you with a certificate detailing the following:

  • An inventory containing each appliance type, name, location and description
  • A full set of test results for each appliance tested
  • A full list of any failed items with an explanation of their failure
  • A visible pass or fail label on each appliance detailing the inspection date, next test due and the inspector’s signature.

Upon receipt of your certificate we will always be more than happy to talk you through the contents and advise you on any further action required or any recommendations made.
