PAT or portable appliance testing is a policy in the UK in which routine safety checks are performed on electrical appliances. Essentially, this is a common sense safety regulation to ensure that any people, workers, or tenants who might come into contact with portable electrical appliances are not at risk of injury.

​The Portable Appliance Testing rules are very straightforward as detailed in the 1989 Electricity at Work Regulations, that: “All [electrical] systems shall at all times be of such construction as to prevent, so far as reasonably practical, such danger.” Thus, it only makes sense to have any organization perform testing on appliances on a consistent basis.

​For all types of organizations, from a small office to a large corporation an outside testing company is the best course of action, because a competent and certified PAT Testing professional will best be able to observe the appliances and look for an obvious signs of wear.
