As it impedes the means of extracting bucks out of you, giving
the UNI the capacity to induce many other kinds regulation
that may cause reactance amongst the many, thus the UNI
can conduct business as usual as their safety standards
have been upheld.
Putting the onus of PAT testing to the student removes the
UNIs admittance to guilt and much less susceptible to a law
suit in the event of failure.
On a serious note however, I said you can`t PAT test your
own gear. Everyone else says you can, so look at it from a
legal point of view not a practical one.
