Quick Response Suzuki Carry Van as used by P.A.Tame PAT Testing

The Price of PAT testing

A quick search of the internet reveals a wide range of charges for PAT testing but it is worth considering what you as a customer are getting for your money. It is essential that equipment is tested properly – untrained PAT testers have been found to:

  • Duplicate results
  • Not check fuses
  • Overlook dangerous faults on visual inspections
  • Issue labels for equipment not tested
  • Incorrect equipment used or worse, no equipment at all

It is the responsibility of any business to ensure their electrical equipment is safe for use. If electrical shock or injury occurs as a result of faulty equipment, businesses can be prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), so it is important to select a PAT tester with care.

3 Phase and Fixed Appliance Service

...coming soon

Replacing appliances can be very costly. Often all that is needed is cleaning of contacts or securing of terminals in order for items to pass. Rest assured that no appliance will fail unless there is good reason for it to do so.

About me

After more than 35 years spent working in the live entertainment industry on sound, it felt like time for a change. Inspired by another local PAT tester, I studied and attended the City & Guilds 2377 course for in-service inspection and testing. Using the latest technology to save and print test results allows me to spend more time on the thorough testing of each item, using presets created in accordance with the IET Code Of Practice 4th edition.

PAT Testing and The Law

Portable appliance testing is not specifically required by law, however The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 puts a duty of care upon both employer (sections 2, 3 and 4 etc) and employee (section 7) to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises. This includes the self employed.

The Electricity At Work Regulations 1989 states:

"As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger". (Regulation 4(2)) An important part of this maintenance programme is portable appliance testing. It may also be required to comply with some insurance policies.


Landlords are required by law to ensure:

That the electrical installation in a rented property is safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration. That a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) has a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years. If your property is not an HMO, you are not legally obliged to do this. However, we recommend that a periodic inspection and test is carried out by a registered electrician on your rental properties at least every five years. That any appliance provided is safe and has at least the CE marking (which is the manufacturer’s claim that it meets all the requirements of European law). To meet these requirements a landlord will need to regularly carry out basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.
