Depending on where you operate and the kind of gear that you rent, you might need to test or inspect your kit. PAT, Test & Tag, and LOLER are common tests for our customers.
Even if it’s not a legal requirement, you might like to periodically check your assets to make sure that they’re safe and up to your company’s standards.
With Testing & Inspection in Current RMS, you can:
Set up the different kinds of inspections or tests that you do.
Say which kit needs testing and how often.
Filter the list of tests by due date, inspection type, product group, or tags.
Log test results, including pass/fail status and additional values.
Print test documents.
Get warnings when assets that are due a test are allocated to an opportunity, or prevent Current RMS from letting you allocate them altogether.
How does Testing & Inspection work?
Create inspections in System Setup > Inspections
This is where you set up the types of tests that you do, how often you do them, and the values that you record.
Apply tests to your products
Edit your products and tick the types of test that apply to the product’s assets.
Test your assets
Use the Testing & Inspections screen to see all of the assets that you need to test and log results.
In Current RMS, you set up your own inspections – so you can choose exactly the kind of data that you’d like to record.
Common tests that folks record in Current RMS:
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) in the UK and Ireland.
Test & Tag in Australia and New Zealand.
DGUV Vorschrift 3 in Germany.
Many US states have their own regulations, e.g. Washington state has stringent inspection requirements for rigging gear. The same is true for EU member states.
PAT test devices
There’s a few ways that you can bring in test results from PAT testers or other testing devices:
Import results using a CSV spreadsheet.
Use PATorganiser’s integration to interface directly with testing devices.
Build your own integration using our open API.

Can I test bulk or non-stock?
No. Only inventory that’s serialized may be tested, since test results must be associated with a unique identifier.
Remember, just because you’ve serialized something doesn’t mean you have to allocate an asset to it on an opportunity. You may mark a group booking as prepped or booked out.
Can I print test documents?
Absolutely. Head to a stock level page to pull off documents like certificates. See: Work with asset inspection results
