PAT testing doesn't apply to industrial equipment. A welding rod quiver is not a consumer product and therefore is exempt from the requirement to be supplied with a plug. As there are a range of plug types that could be fitted to a quiver eg 3-pin or BS4343 etc, depending on what power supply it will be used with, it is customary to leave it to the distributor/end-user to determine and fit their required plug. This is the same convention as used with welding machines, lathes, presses and other industrial equipment.
