Asking this question each time you do business eliminates the risk that you could be potentially be inadvertently purchasing or installing non-compliant product. Installing unsafe, non-compliant equipment in error can be a costly mistake. Aside from the cost to your business of repeating the work, any house fires or shocks arising out of the use of non-compliant product could cause loss of life or property and result in legal liabilities to electrical contractors who install these products, and the manufacturers or distributors who sell them.
Does It Comply? is an industry initiative lead by BEAMA, GAMBICA, LIA, ACI, and ESCO, and supported by Voltimum. The mission is to educate and inform contractors, installers, and specifiers to the damaging consequences to the industry from the trade in non-compliant product, whilst raising the profile to the wider stakeholders of issues with non-compliant products.
