IET Code of Practice Changes Event

There has been a lot of noise recently around the Code of Practice and IET’s updating of it from the third Edition to the fourth Edition. In fact there’s been a lot of talk about PAT testing since the Lofstedt report was published.

Now it seems that the IET have updated the Code of Practice to fall in line with new ideas on PAT testing and to ensure further clarity in what contractors are responsible for and what they should be doing.

There are a number of interesting changes to the 4th Edition of the IET Code of Practice including that duty holders are now responsible for specifying testing frequency not the PAT tester and that trailing leads in offices are now allowed so long as correct assessments have been carried out.

There are a vast number of changes, some simple, some a little more complicated, but the IET have said that on the whole they have worked to make the book easier to understand and clearer.

However, there is still some confusion surrounding what contractors are, and are not, responsible for and what will be enforced. So to combat this confusion PASS has teamed up with Megger to bring you a free road-show event which discusses the changes and aims to help clear up any misunderstanding.

If you are someone struggling to understand what these changes mean for you, get yourself along to the Stockton on Tees training centre on the 22nd March or the 11th April. Even if you feel you do understand the changes, come along anyway, there might be something you’ve missed.

We look forward to seeing you there at:
