The PAT test is an important authentication process that ensures all your electrical installations meet the strictest safety requirements.
The whole process is known as “in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment.”
This routine check of all electrical appliances verifies that your installations comply with all legal requirements and also proves how seriously you take safety issues.
In the event of any damages or claims, your PAT certificate proves that your electrical installations have been tested and certified.
PAT testing includes:
- visual inspections
- earth-bond tests
- insulation-resistance tests
- flash testing
- load tests
- earth-leakage testing
- functional checks
We therefore recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly and Select Plan Ltd can undertake this examination nationwide.
