    PAT Testing - how frequent?

    Legally how frequently do i need to arrange PAT testing? i read up to 5 years, how frequently do people generally test?

    I'm in Scotland which may not be the same as England

    For England, at least, there is no specific legislation that requires PATs.

    Section 57 in http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/hsg107.pdf contains some guidelines. Note that some common equipment never needs to see a PAT tester ((non-human), although needs to be properly visually checked maybe as often as yearly.

      But there is a duty of care by the Landlord to his/her tenant.

      Failure to inspect and test the electrical installation and included equipment, eg washing machine/fridge freezer, etc, could lead to prosecution if there is an incident.
