What Is PAT Testing?

 
  Portable appliance testing (commonly known as "PAT", "PAT Inspection" or "PAT Testing") is the name of a process in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand and Australia by which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety. The correct term for the whole process is "in-service inspection & testing of electrical equipment".  
     
 

Why Should PAT Testing Be Carried Out?

 
  Pat testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy.
The main reason to carry out “PAT Testing” is to determine whether electrical equipment is fit for continued service or if maintenance or replacement is necessary.
 
     
 

How Often Should PAT Testing Be Carried Out?

 
  The level of inspection and testing required is dependent upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependent upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.  
  There is no straight answer to how often PAT Testing should be carried out. Instead a risk-based assessment should be carried out to determine the frequency of testing. The Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment has a suggested initial frequency table that can be used as a guide.  
     
 

What Is The Process Of PAT Testing?

 
  Without passing the initial visual inspection, no appliance can be passed as safe. The visual inspection process is:  
  1. Check plug casings for damage
2. Removal of the plug cover
3. Check correct fuse rating
4. Check correct wiring
5. Check terminals and connections are secure
6. Check there is minimal bare wire
7. Check for signs of overheating & discoloration
8. Check for misuse/ingress of liquids or foreign matter
9. Check cable/cord grips
 
  The checks and inspections outlined above, should, if carried out properly, reveal most potentially dangerous faults, however not all faults are detectable by carrying out just a visual inspection:  
  • Loss of earth integrity (earth test)
• Deterioration of insulation integrity (insulation test)
• Other associated tests as required/necessary (earth leakage, load testing)
 
  Therefore the relevant tests associated with the class of the appliance should then be performed.
