Electric shock

The product poses a serious risk of electric shock because :

- the earth wire is not longer than the conductors carrying current. If the lead is pulled out of the plug housing, the earth wire does not break only after the conductors carrying current; it is therefore ineffective;

- the cross-section of the mains connection lead is too small (only 0.75 mm²). The cross-section must be at least 1 mm² for appliances with a rated current of 6.5 A;

- the appliance is not equipped with a pull-relief device, with the result that the conductors are not protected from pulling, including twisting, at the point at which they are connected inside the appliance and the insulation is protected against abrasion. This results in a risk of electric shock;

- the screw intended to secure the earth connection is not protected against accidentally coming loose. Earth clamps must be protected against accidentally coming loose.

This product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant standards.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market by the retailer

Enforcement is a top priority of the EU Consumer Policy Strategy 2007-2013. Both measures leading to RAPEX notifications and measures which come to the attention of the Commission and other Member States as reactionsare indications of enforcement activity in the Member State concerned.

In order to give a better view on the overall level of enforcement, including the follow-up activities of the national market surveillance authorities, the Commission RAPEX team has decided to publish on the RAPEX website also the names of the countries that have found the notified product on their market and have taken appropriate measures (and have submitted a reaction to a RAPEX notification as a consequence).

Information about the reacting countries is available in the RAPEX weekly overviews in the column 'Products were found and measures were taken also in'. The Commission RAPEX team will publish reactions sent (from May2009 onwards) to 2009 RAPEX notifications.
