Before a portable electrical appliance may be used it is vital that the item has been electrically tested and deemed safe to use. Any item that has been subjected to an appropriate portable appliance test programme will, if the test is satisfactory and current, bear a portable appliance test sticker or label. These should bear the name of the tester and next test date.
