About Us - Northamptonshire Portable Appliance Testing

Current regulations require that any electrical system should be constructed, maintained and used in such a manner as to prevent danger. In consequence, the inspection and testing of all systems (including Portable Appliance Systems ) is required.


The TEE code of practice is drawn from four main areas of legislation.

  1. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
  2. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
  3. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
  4. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

“It shall be the duty of every employer and self employed person to comply with the provisions of these Regulations in so far as they relate to matters which are within his/her control.”

Are You a Duty Holder or the Responsible Person?

This is anyone who is deemed to have the responsibility or ‘control’ of an electrical system.
They are responsible for a range of distribution systems, be they 400 kV or simply those within buildings, down to the smallest piece of electrical equipment such as a hairdryer, fan, radio or VDU.
Duty Holders or those responsible, have a legal obligation as may be necessary to prevent danger and all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.
