Portable Appliance Testing

Examples of equipment consider a portable electrical appliance?
Items that can easily moved from one place to another for instance, kettle, toaster, power tool or vacuum cleaner. Additional items such as office IT equipment, PC’s, printers, photocopiers etc. are also classed as a portable electrical appliance.
Duration of test. 12 months or 48 months?
Whilst many businesses PAT requirements are quite straightforward, not all are the same, and as such the duration of test should be considered carefully. If you would like guidance, we can help you understand your legal requirements, comply with legislation, and essentially, ensure your appliances are safe to use.
