Figuring out what needs to be PAT Tested is actually quite simple. Portable appliances are defined in legislation as "any equipment that is not part of a fixed installation but is intended to be connected to a fixed installation or generator". A portable appliance is any appliance that uses a flexible cable or plug and socket. In other words, if you have an appliance with a plug that is meant to be connected to a wall socket or generator, it must be PAT tested.
Items such as electric drills, monitors, printers, PCs, kettles, and larger items such as photocopiers, vending machines, and others fall into this category. So, whilst a cordless power tool does not need to be PAT tested, the battery chargers that plug into the wall for power do. Are you looking for PAT Testing near London?
All IT equipment should be tested, including power cords to this equipment, which must be tested separately from the equipment they power due to a different standard. Because electrical cable extensions are among the most common sources of safety hazards, they are the most frequently tested items. All 110 volt equipment, as well as all three phase equipment, should be tested.
