Our industry body NECA is wanting us to educate our clients and to make it become common knowledge of non-compliant products and the risks. Buying online products from overseas to save a few dollars can cost you more in the long run.
Before purchasing and installing that new electrical product investigate that it complies to Australian Standards with the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) on the electrical equipment you purchase.
Purchasing substandard products can be extremely dangerous causing fire or other damage to your home. A non-compliant or non-approved product is rendered invalid through your insurance and also if the non-compliant product causes injury or death, there’s also the risk of criminal prosecution.
