All appliances used in a more hazardous environment like the warehouse or in a kitchen or any portable appliances where the lead is subject to flexing in the normal mode of operation like;
power boards, extension leads, power supplies, laptops and laptop power supplies; these appliances should be tested once every twelve months.
Following on from the Testing Procedure, records must be kept whilst the Appliance is in service, up till when the Appliance has been re-tested or until the Appliance has been removed from service.
