Do I have to PAT test every year...?
The short answer is maybe, every type of business is different, it all depends on what type of business you are, what type of equipment you have and where it's located. A builder's power tools may need to be tested every 3 months due to the harsh conditions where as a stand alone computer may be every two years, we find in most businesses there are some items that are yearly and others that are two yearly, two yearly items should be visually inspected yearly anyway. It can be very confusing so we at SMC recommend yearly inspection and testing, that way you know you are covered and it's also more cost effective as visual inspections are the same price as a full test.
