PAT: Portable Appliance Testing

What is Portable Appliance Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing is a procedure that examines electrical appliances and equipment to ensure that they are safe for use. The Engineer will conduct a visual examination of the appliance, and a dedicated Portable Appliance Tester will be used to find any non-visual defects. The Engineer will perform both visual and non-visual examinations of appliances to conform to electrical safety standards.

​Grades of PAT Testing?

Electrical appliances are normally categorised into 3 Class:

1. Class 1 - Most dangerous (This type of equipment only has basic insulation and relies on earth for protection. This needs a full PAT Test)

2. Class 2 - Middle ground (This type of electrical equipment has extra insulation and doesn't rely on earth for protection. Needs at-least a PAT Insulation Test)

3. Class 3 - Least dangerous (This is normally a low voltage item and is the safest of all 3 of the grades. I would recommend a PAT Test to be done anyway as their charging leads may still need to be checked but not necessary.
