All work carried out conforms to the IEE Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection
& Testing of Electrical Equipment.
Portable Appliance Testing consists of a series of inspections and electrical tests
on each item. These tests vary depending on the class of the item.
A visual inspection is undertaken first to check for faults /damage to the:
• Plug Casing (Plugs are replaced free of charge if damaged) • Damage to
the flex of the appliance. (Cracked or cut) • The wiring of the plug is checked to
ensure correct and secure termination • The fuse rating of the plug is checked.(Fuses
are replaced free of charge, if required)
Minor repairs are also free of charge Once these Visual tests have been carried out.
A number of Electrical tests are performed depending on the class of the equipment.
Please Note: All the above tests constitute 1 full test, you are not charged for
each of the above tests.
Appliance testing results are then noted and the electrical item marked accordingly
with a pass or fail label.
These results are then compiled into a report and Emailed to you in PDF, electronic
storage saves on paper but you may print them if required.
You will then be fully compliant with all relevant regulations.
• I realise that in some cases Portable Appliance Testing may be an unwanted disruption
to your business. Because of this I can operate outside of normal working hours to
suit the customer. Evening and weekend appointments carry no extra charges.
• Prices when quoted include all the above (there are no hidden charges), Many companies
offer quotations depending on only the number of items, I don't believe that this
is a reliable way to do things, this shows that the service provided is a ONE PRICE
• Clients premises are all different so the time taken to test appliances can differ
dramatically, I always discuss clients requirements and visit the premises (if possible)
to carry out a site survey and risk assessment, this will enable me to price the
testing program accordingly.
• However, just to assist you in a decision to choose me as your test engineer,
in general up to 250 items carries a price of £1.00 per appliance/item (min invoice
of £70) for up to 40 items/appliances or less, over that quantity (250) the cost
is negotiable depending on number of appliances.
