    Question is; is it needed at all? If there is a need for PAT testing any of the equipment brought in, then some kind of solution is going to have to be available. If not, then.. "Yay!" :)

  3. Might not be needed at all on most equipment.

    Noticed this on the BBC news website about firms testing everything when it isn't needed.
