Whose responsibility is it to ensure products are compliant?
Electrical Contractors are at the front-end of legal accountability when confronted with the consequences of installing ‘non-compliant’ product.
The IET Wiring Regulations states that “Every item of equipment shall be selected and erected so as to allow compliance with the regulations…” in the event of failure, or where it is subsequently found that ‘non-compliant’ has been installed, whether deliberately or by accident, then the installer will be liable either as a breach of contract or for failure to comply with the BS7671 Regulations.
