Audits and Enforcement


Monitoring accidents, incidents and alerts

Market monitoring of electrical and gas products through audits and inspections of suppliers and products is our proactive approach to maintaining the compliance framework and promoting the appropriate steps to sourcing and supplying safe products.

Our approach to market monitoring is to:

  • ensure that electrical and gas product suppliers comply with the Regulations
  • strengthen relationships with the electrical and gas product industries
  • improve our understanding of the marketplace
  • maintain the value of a safe gas and electrical products
  • maintain the integrity of the appliance safety regime
  • provide a level playing field for suppliers
  • target non-compliance.


In order to determine trends, notifiable electrical injury accidents and notifiable and non-notifiable gas accident information collected since 1993 has also been analysed. This information is available in the publications section on our website in Accident summaries.
