Sole Trader Application


This is the first of two stages of your application to join the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association; please ensure you read the following information before progressing with the application.

  1. Below, are two clickable links, based on whether you want to pay your fees monthly or annually – if you choose monthly the first payment will be taken on the next 1st of the month; if you want to pay annually, your payment will be taken immediately (within 3 days usually) and then every 12 months thereafter. The direct debit will be set up via Go Cardless and will continue indefinitely until you stop it.
  2. The payment amount you agree to now will remain the same for the lifetime of your membership, providing your membership is not cancelled by you or by patta; if the direct debit is cancelled by you your membership will be cancelled and you will need to re-apply as a new member.
  3. The link will open a direct debit form, which you must complete in full; the details on the form must match the application form which is stage 2 of your application.
  4. When you have submitted the form, you will be taken to a new page on this website, to complete the membership application form. You must complete that in full answering all questions. If there are any issues or anything we need to raise with you we will contact you. If there are no issues your membership will start on the date the first payment is received. You will be notified within 30 days of the membership starting; everything you need to know about membership and all access information, including to the forum will be included in that information.
