Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Examination of electrical appliances is called Portable Appliance Testing (PAT), and it is designed to ensure that your equipment is safe to use. Basically, our engineers will test anything with a plug on it. Our electrician will provide a certificate detailing what appliances have been tested. PAT Testing is a periodically testing process of your electrical appliances to ensure they are safe to use and should be an essential part of any company’s health and safety policy.

It is a legal requirement to maintain all portable electrical equipment in a safe condition. Therefore, the only way to comply with that is to carry out PAT testing and establish an appropriate schedule. So whilst PAT testing itself isn‘t legally required it’s a recognised way to ensure compliance with the various regulations such as:

Health and Safety at Work; the safety at Work Act 1974; Regulations 1999, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, etc. Furthermore, The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 puts the responsibility of care upon both the employers and the staff to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises.

PAT Testing is not the same as Electrical Installation Condition Report. The testing doesn‘t look at the actual wiring of a property of the fuse board.


The Electrical Safety Council’s Guidance recommends PAT Testing to help landlord’s obligations to be sure that any portable electrical appliances provided to the tenant are safe at the point of letting and at periodic intervals after that. Tenants should also be provided with full instruction manuals and be told to read and follow them.

Eamon McDonald

I had a fairly substantial project that would need great care and communication throughout.There was a great need for complete transparency as the works were to be constrained by budget.From experience I know that there are always those hidden problems that no one expects until you get into the build.For this reason it's essential to have a team that can adapt and draw on their wealth of experience to get a first class result.The Snow White team kept me up to date every step of the way and most importantly kept a close watch on costs.The quality of work is excellent and the builders were both professional and tidy.I have appointed Snow White for all my future builds...well done and Thank You!

Galin repaired brickwork around my fishpond and replaced the waterfall and capping stones. He did a fantastic job and no detail I requested was too much trouble. I will happily use Snow White again for any building or repair jobs. They are a great team and very fairly priced.
