The process includes inspecting the plug, fuse, and cable for physical damage, as well as checking the appliance itself for wear and tear or damage. Electrical tests might include earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance tests.
While PAT Testing itself is not explicitly legally required, various UK regulations, such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, require that electrical equipment be maintained in a safe condition.
