PAT Testing Scheduling
The frequency of portable appliance testing is determined by several factors. This includes the type of equipment and its classification, the frequency it is used and/or moved and the environment in which it is operating. Our PAT Testing Engineers will specify your exact requirements. We use the IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment 4th Edition guidelines to help determine this.
