Statutory Testing

The University is required to carry out statutory testing for specific pieces of plant and equipment which is covered by a particular regulation. This will involve inspection, maintenance and testing in accordance with that regulation.

Examples of equipment or systems which are covered by legislation:

Where you have new equipment which may fall into the statutory test requirements and you are not aware of inspections being carried out, or where you believe you have equipment which may be outside the required testing time frame, complete the Statutory Testing Report Form. Should any equipment that was formally tested be taken out of commission, or removed from service completely, ensure this is also captured using the Statutory Testing Report Form so that the item can be taken off the inspection schedule.

More information can be found:

This provides details on how to ensure that your equipment is on the statutory testing register held by Estates and how to remove equipment that has been disposed of.
