Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
How often should PAT testing be done?
There is no specific period after which PAT testing must be done. Every appliance should be repaired and maintained from time to time to ensure that there are no potential hazards. It is a common belief that PAT testing has to be done every year in offices, but the law does not require you to do so every year.
Before we understand how often it should be done, it is important to understand why it is important to be done regularly. Every citizen should take the PAT testing, and their safety is as important as the authorities do. It should not be done just because you are following the law but because you are concerned about yourself and the others in your building’s safety.
