All Portable Appliance Testing will be carried out in accordance with the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) Code of Practice for In-Service and Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment 4th Edition.
The IEE’s code of practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment does not deal with the legislation relating to the supply of equipment whether new or second hand, to a third party by the way of sale or other method.

Any previous records of tests are to be made available, if possible, to SGR Pat Testing before testing begins.
SGR Pat Testing accepts no liability for injury, loss or damage for appliances that are made available or are inaccessible during the agreed testing/inspection period.
The client must ensure that any critical information or data has been protected or backed up prior to the start of the inspection and testing.
SGR Pat Testing provides insurance cover for public liability. SGR Pat Testing will accept no liability for the business interruption, loss of data or business information, losses to business related services or loss to business profits. SGR Pat Testing accepts no liability for injury, loss or damage for appliances that are found to be faulty before or after the inspection and testing.
