PAT Test - PAT Records

Although there is no requirement in the Electricity at Work Regulations to keep records of equipment and of inspections and tests, the HSE Memorandum of Guidance on these regulations advises that records of maintenance including tests should be kept throughout the working life of equipment.

The keeping of suitable records then is well advised. They provide evidence for the defence in the event of a prosecution; more practically, such records enable the close monitoring of the equipment highlighting potential faults or adverse trends. They are also essential in forming an accurate assessment of the necessary frequency of testing. For example, if over a number of consecutive test cycles few or no failures were recorded then the duty holder may consider reducing the frequency of tests, obviously the converse may also apply.

JPS provide a comprehensive PAT Testing report at the end of each contract. An example report can be seen here. Normally supplied thermally bound in paper format, it can also be supplied in pdf.

JPS can also provide a CDR with a read only mirror of our access database.
