PAT Testing Regulations

Conforming to PAT testing regulations helps ensure that the portable appliances in your business are safe and help you to avoid violations.

PAT testing legislation ensures that companies conform to the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), Electricity at Work Regulations (1989), Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulations (1998) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations o(1999).

The law requires that all employers maintain portable appliances and ensure their safety. This is done through testing of the appliances to safeguard against damage and to make certain that they perform properly.

PAT testing law requires all landlords, employers and some self-employed individuals to ensure that relevant appliances are safe and suitable for the purposes intended. These appliances should be maintained properly and remain in good working order.

The guidelines are designed to make certain that this equipment is protected and is preserved through regular maintenance as well as inspections and periodic testing. Damage and fault can occur with all electrical equipment use which makes it essential that these items are tested regularly for safety.

PAT testing is ensures that all electrical equipment that is classified as “portable” is deemed safe for use. The legislation deems that any competent person can perform it by using a PAT instrument or tester. The visual examination of each appliance in addition to the actual PAT test should only be performed by someone who is deemed competent.

According to PAT testing legislation, a competent person is someone with experience or knowledge of being able to check and test appliances for safety purposes. Those with knowledge of electricity in general as well as anyone who has experience in electrical work can be deemed capable.

It is imperative that employers, landlords and self-employed individuals follow the rules to ensure that their workplaces are safe. Testing can be done by PAT testing companies or by certified individuals.
