PAT Testing Procedure

Selleck Testing use the IET Code of Practice for the In-Service Inspection and Test of portable electrical equipment together with the considerable experience gained over the past 18 years.

Before commencement of any testing a thorough visual inspection of the appliance is conducted and this should be considered the most important test since it is at this stage approximately 40% of failures can be identified.

The visual inspections will identify:

  • Damage to flex
  • Damage the plug, appliance and evidence of overheating, scorching or damage
  • Incorrectly wired plug
  • Incorrectly rated fuse

In addition to all of the above our engineers also check that the appliance is suitable for use within the environment in which it is located. Any observations or comments will be reported to the appointed duty holder on site.

Upon satisfactory completion of the visual inspection, the appropriate tests will be conducted on the appliance and will include some, or all of the following:

  • Earth continuity
  • Insulation resistance
  • Flex polarity
  • Earth leakage
  • Operation/Run test

All appliances are labelled with a unique bar code number and test status PASS/FAIL. Any remedial repairs such as replacing plugs or fuses are carried out prior to testing with no additional costs incurred.

All test results are thoroughly cross checked and scrutinised at our offices to ensure accuracy and quality control processes.

Test results are produced in a professionally bound folder detailing appliance id, specific locations and test results. For your additional convenience test results can also be produced on a CDROM for future viewing and printing of certificates.
