WHAT IS PAT TESTING?

There are many interpretations of what a portable appliance is, taken from The Requirements for Electrical Installation BS7671, the definition of a portable appliance or mobile equipment is: ' Electrical Equipment which is moved while in operation or which can easily be moved from one place to another while connected to the supply.'
