Portable Appliance (or PAT) testing is a requirement for mobile discos or indeed any entertainment that uses electrical equipment. PAT testing involves thorough testing of all electrical equipment that will be used by your DJ at your event. Equipment PAT tests are usually carried out annually to ensure that all items are electrically safe to use.
Whilst not a legal requirement for your entertainer to have his equipment regularly tested, it is recommended under the Electricity at Work Act 1989 that this be carried out on a regular basis. Iin fact, many venues will not allow entry if the DJ does not provide proof of PAT testing. Make sure you always ask for confirmation that your DJ is properly P.A.T Certified. Elite DJ Entertainment can and will provide confirmation upon request.
