Ensuring the safety of low-risk consumer electronics
Under the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010, a supplier’s declaration of conformity is required before placing on the market any low voltage or extra-low voltage fittings or appliances that have been declared as medium risk by the regulator. These products include certain Electric Wires and Cables; Switches for Circuit, Installation Protective and Connection Devices; Electrical Tools; Electric Welding Machines; Household and Similar-use Appliances; Audio and Video Products; Lighting and Electrical Appliances; and Power Transformers, Power Supply Units and Similar Products. The supplier’s declaration of conformity must be in accordance with ISO/IEC 17050 Part 1, and the official government supplied forms reflect the suggested format contained in this International Standard.
