What needs to be Portable Appliance Tested (PAT)?

An item in need of testing isn’t just anything portable though. Items that need testing – and what kind of testing they need – are determined by the three different classes and seven categories. Class 1 means it needs to be fully PAT tested, Class 2 means it needs a PAT insulation test, while Class 3 means it doesn’t need to be tested (though charging cables may need to be).   

The categories of items are as follows:

  • Fixed appliances
  • Stationary appliances
  • IT appliances
  • Moveable appliances
  • Portable appliances
  • Cables and chargers
  • Handheld appliances
