Notes:
1.   The Formal visual inspection may form part of the combined inspection and tests when they coincide, and is to be recorded.
2.   110V earthed centre-tapped supply. 230V portable or hand-held equipment is required to be supplied via a 30mA RCD and inspections and tests may need to be carried out more frequently (e.g., a check of a portable RCD via its manual test button).
3.   For some equipment such as children's rides or equipment in more onerous environments a daily check may be necessary.
4.   By supervisor/teacher/member of staff.
5.   Equipment provided in hotel rooms is equipment used by the public. Equipment in hotels (row 5 in the table) is considered to be equipment in hotels used by the hotel staff.
6.   Hired equipment, in use for periods in excess of 1 week, should be included on an equipment register and a risk assessment carried out to determine the future frequency of inspections and testing, unless the equipment is covered by a supplier's lease and maintenance contract, providing the maintenance contract is robust and satisfactory.
    It is normally not necessary to test new items of equipment as the manufacturer has already tested them.
Battery-operated equipment less than 40 volts requires no visual or in-service inspection and testing. Note that specific guidelines for battery drills etc., used in mines, are not within the scope of this Code of Practice.
The information on suggested initial frequencies given in the table is more detailed and specific than HSE guidance, but is not considered to be inconsistent with it.

  S  Stationary Electrical Equipment

M  Movable Electrical Equipment
P  Portable Electrical Equipment
H  Hand-Held Electrical Equipment
F  Fixed Electrical Equipment
