Appliance Testing

Each appliance is comprehensively tested to meet the exacting requirements of the IEE code of practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. We use the latest computerised PAT testing equipment and are able to test all portable appliances in your company or organisation  



On completion of the testing you will be issued with a safety certificate this detailed report  provides information on each individual item. All items that pass the inspection & testing will be labelled with a safety sticker and a unique number that helps keep track of all portable appliances in your organisation .



Minor faults found during the course of the inspection can be repaired as we find them and the appliance re-tested. More serious faults will always be quoted for first.
