Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing is the process of checking electrical appliances for safety through a series of visual inspections and electronic tests.
To be accurate , the correct terminology is now "In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment" for now lets just call it PAT
Upon completion of the PAT inspection and testing you will receive a report that details the following
- An inventory containing each appliance type, name, location and description
- A full set of test results for each appliance tested
- A full list of any failed items with an explanation of their failure
- A visible pass or fail label on each appliance detailing the inspection date, and the inspector’s signature.
