What is PAT Testing and how does it affect my business? Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) is the inspection and / or testing that is required for all portable electrical appliances to assess their operational safety and the safety of personnel operating the equipment. PAT Testing is an invaluable tool to ensure your business complies with The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989. Many insurance companies will insist this is done before they will start or renew a policy. Without up to date PAT Testing your existing insurance may be invalid as equipment might not comply with current business regulations. What is classed as a portable appliance and what requires PAT Testing? Portable appliances can be defined as any item of electrical equipment that has a power lead with a plug that is intended to be connected to the mains electricity supply. These items are required to be tested on a regular basis to ensure that they are in a safe working condition. The recommended frequency of PAT Testing is based on the type of equipment and ranges from 3 to 48 months depending on the operating environment. Each appliance should be appropriately marked to record the examination date or display the date for re-testing and the result of the test (pass or fail).
