Energy Safety works with manufacturers and importers throughout the audit and investigation process to initiate proactive education strategies and audit programmes that enhance our effectiveness as a safety regulator.
Enforcement of electrical and gas product safety is based on Energy Safety’s observations and assessment of the market. Energy Safety operates in a fair and consistent manner when dealing with non-compliance.
A warning notice will outline the offence observed and the remedial action to take.
An infringement notice will be issued in the form specified in Schedules of the Regulations.
Energy Safety may take prosecution action rather than issue an infringement notice. This will be considered on a case by case basis.
If it is determined that a serious safety risk is occurring or could occur, then a Prohibition or an Urgent Instruction may be issued.
