PAT Testing Cardiff

PAT Testing, short for Portable Appliance Testing, involves thoroughly checking electrical appliances to ensure their safety for use. While visual inspections can catch most safety issues, certain defects can only be identified through testing with specialist tools.

At Assured Electricians, we’ve been carrying out PAT Testing across Cardiff and the surrounding area for many years. We also prioritize efficient site testing with flexible scheduling, including early starts and out-of-hours testing. Our customer base spans from offices to retail outlets across various sectors, meaning no job is too small or big.

Unlike many other firms offering this service, if we’ve tested your appliance and found a fault (i.e. it has failed the PAT test), our experienced and skilled electricians can often repair it onsite. Once fixed, we can test it again to ensure the appliance is safe to use.

Whether you require PAT testing at home or for your business, call us on 07741 502012 or visit our contact page to schedule a date with us.

How Do We Carry Out PAT Testing?

As mentioned above, at Assured Electricians, we always try to schedule PAT testing at a time that best suits you. Therefore, once a time is agreed, we’ll arrive onsite and carry out the following:

  • Gather information from you about specific concerns, high-traffic areas, or critical equipment that needs priority attention.
  • Identify and categorise the electrical appliances and equipment that need testing.
  • Perform a thorough visual inspection to identify any apparent defects, such as frayed cables, damaged plugs, or visible signs of wear.
  • Set up our specialist PAT testing equipment and perform a series of electrical tests based on the type of equipment, such as earth continuity tests, insulation resistance tests, and leakage current tests.
  • Record each test result and label the tested appliances.
  • Document all of the tested appliances, including details of the testing process, the appliance’s condition, and any other information.
  • Provide you with a certificate of compliance for appliances that passed and explanations for those that failed.

Is It A Legal Requirement?

PAT Testing is not a strict legal requirement in the UK. However, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that electrical equipment must be maintained to prevent danger, and PAT Testing is a widely accepted means of fulfilling this obligation.
