PAT Testing For Schools

Global Compliance provides specialised PAT Testing services for schools in Bristol and South Wales, adhering to Health and Safety regulations. These crucial measures ensure that all electrical appliances are safe and suitably maintained to prevent any harm to staff and students. Many equipment manufacturers recommend regular testing to guarantee consistent safety. The interval between these tests is contingent on the type of appliance and its operating environment within the school.

The European Low Voltage Directive regulates the manufacturing and importation of electrical appliances. To comply with this, the display of the CE mark on the product is necessary, showing declared conformity. Global Compliance is central to these checks, delivering the highest standards of Portable Appliance Testing in Bristol and South Wales. The responsibility for ensuring this lies with the manufacturer or importer and is overseen by Trading Standards.

Global Compliance utilises its own testing equipment, specifically designed for PAT inspections in schools. This equipment is based on the same testing apparatus used by manufacturers to confirm compliance with the British Standard Code of Practice and European product standards relevant to each type of appliance.

Bristol PAT Testing requirements for students living in Halls of Residence


Many Universities including Bristol will state in term contracts that students living in student halls must have all personal electrical items PAT Tested. This can sometimes be a requirement of their building insurance policy and at other times be a part of their own electrical safety policy.

What this means is that any electrical item that students take with them to their student halls must be PAT Tested. This includes T.V's, X-Boxes, laptops or pc's and even fans or heaters. Global Compliance is passionate about the safety of all electrical appliances which is why we are the Premier company to choose for Bristol PAT Testing.
