I have read before that generators do not require testing ? is this correct? obviously all assosiated leads appliances require testing as normal ..

Certainly it doesnt have a plug or lead to connect to the pat tester with anyway. It is however an alternative source under BS7671:2008 and an electrical installation certificate should be completed each time it is set up in a new area with emphasis on the earth return path (earth spike, zs and rcd times etc). This is my understanding and no doubt will come under scrutiny or critism of others but hope it helps
