What exactly is PAT testing? 

PAT Testing is an inspection of certain types of electrical appliances to ensure their safety. Its goal is to reduce risks to employees, homeowners, and tenants by preventing electrical accidents. A full PAT test will include a visual inspection as well as an in-depth examination with PAT testing equipment. This test includes checks for earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance.

Some appliances only require a simplified test known as a PAT insulation test.

Every appliance will be marked 'passed' or 'failed' at the end of a PAT test. You will also receive a record of the results to keep on file.

PAT testing stands for Portable Appliance Testing. A portable appliance is defined as "any appliance with a plug that plugs into a wall outlet". Currently, seven types of appliances must be PAT tested and visually inspected. Fixed appliances, Stationary appliances, IT appliances, Movable appliances, Portable appliances, Cables and chargers, and Handheld appliances are examples of these.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is defined by the HSE as "The term for electrical testing and inspection of appliances and equipment to ensure their safety. Most electrical safety defects can be detected visually, but some types of defects can only be detected through testing. However, it is critical to recognise that visual examination is an important part of the process because some types of electrical safety defects cannot be detected solely through testing." ​​

Is PAT Testing London a legal requirement?

PAT testing is not a legal requirement in London, but current UK legislation requires businesses to keep electrical equipment in a safe condition. This is a statutory requirement. The business's responsibility is to provide a safe working environment for the public and employees. PAT testing is the most effective way to ensure that your company is safe, secure and compliant. It is the standard method of fulfilling this legal obligation.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 contain full details of the legal requirements. Noncompliance with legal obligations regarding electrical appliance safety can result in up to two years in prison and a financial penalty.

 

Metro-PAT 247 Limited provides same-day and next-day expert PAT testing in London.​​

How Often Do My Appliances Need to Be PAT Tested? 

According to the regulations, the level of precaution should be "appropriate" to the risk. Metro-PAT 247 Limited recommends that units be PAT Tested once a year. We will notify you of any problems or if we believe you are a risk and recommend PAT tests every six months. ​

Which appliances need to be PAT tested?
 

It is actually quite simple to determine what needs to be PAT Tested. Portable appliances are defined as "any equipment that is not part of a fixed installation but is intended to be connected to a fixed installation or generator" by legislation. Any appliance that uses a flexible cable or plug and socket is considered portable. In other words, if you have a plug-in appliance that will be connected to a wall socket or generator, it must be PAT tested.

This category includes items such as electric drills, monitors, printers, PCs, kettles, and larger items such as photocopiers, vending machines, and others. While a cordless power tool does not require PAT testing, battery chargers that plug into the wall do. Do you require PAT Testing in Finchley?
​ \sAll IT equipment should be tested, including power cords to this equipment, which must be tested separately from the equipment they power due to a different standard. Electrical cable extensions are the most frequently tested items because they are among the most common sources of safety hazards. All 110 volt equipment and three phase equipment should be tested. ​​
