Portable Appliance Testing is the electrical safety testing of portable electrical equipment. It consists of a visual inspection and various electrical tests carried out using test equipment. Appliances that have passed the equipment are deemed to be safe to use until the next test date. A sticker is attached to the equipment indicating Pass or fail and next test date. The intervals between test is normally 12 months but can be between 6 to 24 months dependent on the environment. We normally put a 12 months annual Re-Test Date.
Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination, but some defects can only be found by testing. London Property Certificate offers Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Appliances that have passed the equipment are deemed to be safe to use until the next test date.
Our certified professionals will test the equipment thoroughly and will attach a sticker to the equipment, indicating Pass or Fail and has the next test date. We normally put a 12 month annual Re-Test Date, but a more formal inspection and testing may be required at appropriate intervals, depending upon the type of equipment and the environment in which it is used.

It is an accepted method of testing that ensures that your organisation’s portable appliances adhere to the regulations set down by several different governing bodies.
