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.

Frequently asked questions

Our clients about us

Andy Whitting

Snow White have done several jobs for us, ranging from garden maintenance and installing fencing to blocking up an old doorway and making some bespoke shelving. The quality of every job have been excellent. Their staff all work hard; arrive at 8am and work through to late afternoon to get the job done. Unlike many companies, it's easy to get hold of the boss, they're always willing to quote even for small jobs, and the quotes arrive quickly. After trying a few other companies, with mixed results, we'll be sticking with Snow White.

Nicholas Powell

Snow White professionals were absolutely excellent. They did everything and more that we asked for, on time and on budget. The standard of work, tidiness and attention to detail were all extremely good. We are incredibly pleased with the work and will definitely use them again.

Mary-Ann P

Christian worked in my home ‪and he was an absolute star! He was so professional, efficient and thorough. He listened carefully to what I wanted and excelled at not only doing exactly what was asked of him, but by going the extra mile too. He was kind, humble and gracious, and I would be very happy to have him work in my home again.

Arabella Rowe

We were very impressed with Snow White. They renovated our bathroom, moved our boiler, replaced the ceilings on the first floor and fully rewired & re-plastered. They were always responsive, reliable and delightful to have around - always courteous to our neighbours and good at tidying up after themselves. Completion was a little bit delayed due to unforeseen issues with the ceilings, but the team kept us fully aware and worked until 7.30pm on a Saturday in an attempt to get everything finished within the deadline - we had to make them go home! Highly recommend these guys - the best building company we have worked with in London so far, and we will certainly be using them again.

Rockstar Property Academy

We’ve worked with Snow White on several projects now and we’re always happy with the service. Daniel and Yana have become friends now, they recently took us out for dinner too! They’re an ethical family/friends -run business that always put the customer first. Don’t hesitate to work with Snow White, they’re a great company.

Alison Wood

Snow White gave me a very reasonable estimate for repairing and repainting the outside of my house. So pleased I used them as I'm delighted with the results. Can't fault them.

Gavin Byford

Dan and the team were great, my bathroom pocket door had stopped opening, after assessment it looked like a new door was to be installed, after a they started to do the work it was clear it only needed a small about of work on some bolts, they stopped the purchase of the new door and fixed the problem within 1 hour. Tidied up and didn’t even stop for a cup of tea. Saved me over £300! Brilliant people, brilliant service. I will be using them for all my future jobs. Thanks so much Snow White.

L Oconnor

Excellent service from start to finish. I am extremely pleased with the work that was done - removal of an electric fireplace, space plastered over, wallpaper removed on the same wall and also plastered over. The office were easy to contact, they visited quickly to give me a quote, and then the work was scheduled very quickly after this. The builder was very professional, courteous, hard working and tidy. I would definitely recommend this company and would use them again for other work.
