Check your installations

PAT Testing and Your Responsibilities

The PAT test is an important verification tool. This routine check of all electrical appliances ensures that all your electrical installations meet the strictest safety requirements.

The PAT test complies with all legal requirements and may even qualify you for a discount on your insurance premiums, as it proves how seriously you take safety issues. In the event of any damages claims, your PAT certificate proves that your electrical installations have been tested and certified.


PAT testing includes:

  • visual inspections
  • earth-bond tests
  • insulation-resistance tests
  • load tests
  • earth-leakage test
  • functional checks


Non-compliance with PAT standards can lead to severe punishments for corporations and landlords.  Therefore it is recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly to maintain saftey standards
