PAT Testing in Bristol

Global Compliance delivers PAT Testing in Bristol in line with the Health and Safety regulations which require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent harm to workers. Many equipment manufacturers recommend testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety; the interval between tests depending on both the type of appliance and the environment in which it is to be used.


The European Low Voltage Directive governs the manufacture or importation of electrical appliances. Compliance to this has to be declared and indicated by the display of the CE mark on the product and Global Compliance is at the heart of these checks as it delivers the highest standards of Portable Appliance Testing in Bristol and the surrounding areas. The responsibility to have this checked lies with the manufacturer or the importer and is policed by Trading Standards.

Global Compliance's own testing equipment has been specifically developed for PAT inspections, based on the testing equipment used by manufacturers to ensure compliance with the British Standard Code of Practice and European product standards relevant to that type of appliance.
