Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
What is PAT Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing commonly known as PAT Testing is a legal requirement in Ireland to  ensure all businesses have adequate checks on electrical appliances to ensure their safety. 

This includes computers, power tools, fans, kettles and more. 

Not only has it been a legal requirement since 2007, but many insurance companies are now  requiring PAT testing certification before issuing businesses with either building insurance or public  liability insurance. 

An up-to-date PAT testing certificate is also needed for: 


Farmer’s markets. 

Pop-up food courts. 

Shopping Centre’s temporary displays. 

Music Festivals. 


Building sites. 

Ongoing maintenance and checks on your electrical equipment mean you are keeping with the  advised safety standards. Not only safety for the business but also safety for its employees. 

At, Finbar Hoare Electrical Limited we carry out a full visual inspection and electrical
testing of each appliance using a meter (Apollo 500+) to rule out any faulty
appliance. Each appliance is tagged and dated. The results are recorded for your use
or your insurance needs. We provide a full report of test results.
