Yvonne Tech: PAT testing (67* d) RE: Tech: PAT testing 25 Sep 11


Treewind makes a very good point.

As the legislation also falls under the consumer act and a band would be classed as consumers of the electricity in a venue, then the venue should also be able to produce an Electrical Installation Safety Certificate to ensure that their sockets and wiring are safe for use by anyone using their sockets. (yes..it is all insane..but law)

The law says the testing can be done by a 'competent person'. However, I suspect that should anyone be killed by faulty equipment the law would argue that the only way to prove the person testing was 'competent' is for them to have been a fully qualified electrician.

Will Fly has it right. Get it tested by a certified Pat tester. No use crying over 50 or so!
