PAT Tester London - Portable Appliance Testing In London


Portable Appliance Testing or PAT is an inspection of any electrical device that isn’t permanently connected to the house’s electrical grid system. While the word portable may be confusing, it is necessary to state that a PAT certificate covers the safety status of stationary appliances such as electric ovens, washing machines, and any other electrical device. PAT testing is a precaution every house needs, whether you own the property in question and live in it yourself or rent it fully furnished.

An electrician familiar with various electrical appliances must carry out the PAT testing since it covers different electrical technologies. Here at EICR Certificate London, we have a team of highly skilled electricians with a wide range of expertise in electrical testing.


Portable Appliance Testing is an inspection procedure standard in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It has been a common practice in a few other countries, such as New Zealand and Australia. This procedure is mandatory in some cases, like houses with multiple occupants and not a legal mandate for private properties. Still, considering the money it will save in the long term, and more importantly, ensuring the safety and security of your appliances, property, and life, it is certainly worth the effort.

A PAT test will include:

  • Earth Continuity Test

  • Insulation Resistance

  • Polarity Check

According to UK regulations, a PAT certificate must be reexamined and reissued every five years or in intervals suggested by the Electrician according to the case’s specifics.
