I am not 100% on the legal requirements but PAT testing is dead easy and
can be done in house.

Basically you need some common sense and perhaps a Go/No-go PAT tester 

It's primarily designed to weed out devices that have failed or are
dangerous. Things like smashed up mains plugs, frayed / faulty cable

paying an outside contractor to come in and do this seems like the
height of overkill..
