ive read quite lot of sh*t on this IT IS LAW NOT WHAT IS GOOD im an electrician any thing that has a plug on it is classed as a portable appliance its not just good practice to get it checked out its is law. where some one who is working with you or for you can get electrocuted from an item, double insulated mean its class 11 it can leak current so it gets checked for that too not just looked at the cable it take 30mAamps of power to kill some one mains voltage is 32anps ring main that's 30 thousaths of an amp to kill u which is why most rcd trips are 30 msec To prevent electrocution in a failure this is standad using well tested and proven equipment may cost u £50 to test it may be a numpty who tests it me excluded and it will stick in your throat but when some one is killed the law will check your equipment and if u can prove your equipment was tested then you wont get done for man slaughter just some thing less worrisome think about that and the fine will be lower because you did your bit to try and make your gear safe still think the £50 is too much now
