Commercial PAT

PAT testing for commercial organisations can help you comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989 and keep your insurance coverage. For commercial and industrial customers in Beds, Bucks, Herts & surrounding counties, we provide a competent PAT testing service. As a result, we've put together this PAT testing guidance for commercial businesses.


What is a PAT test?

First and foremost, what is a PAT test? It stands for portable appliance testing, and it entails having your appliances tested by a qualified, certified electrician. With a combination of visual inspection and electrical testing, a time served electrician can detect flaws and difficulties. This can assist commercial enterprises in meeting their electrical safety duties and ensuring the safety of their personnel and property.

PAT testing is a step up from routine electrical maintenance, and it will result in recorded and dated proof of all work completed. This is a terrific asset for your company's records, and it demonstrates that you're serious about your legal commitments.

How often is a PAT test necessary?

Your PAT test frequency will be determined by the circumstances of your industrial or commercial setting. From shops to factories, each location will be unique, as will the quantity of portable appliances.

The nature of the electrical appliances will also have an impact on how frequently a PAT test is required. Get in contact with the specialists at City Electrical Services now for personalised PAT testing guidance and support.

Will I receive any documentation?

Following the completion of a PAT test, you will receive a complete report that will include the following information:

  • A complete list of all appliances, including their names, locations, and descriptions.
  • The complete test results for all the appliances
  • A list of any appliances that have failed and, if possible, explanations for the failures
  • A label for each of the tested appliances stating whether it passed or failed, as well as the inspection date, the inspector's name, and the next inspection date.
