  • Under the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010 (Regulation 83) medium risk products are referred to as Declared Medium Risk Articles.
  • The list of Medium risk products is set by a Gazette notice and listed in the Medium Risk Product List on this website.
  • A medium risk product is assessed as having a lower risk factor compared to ‘high risk’ products.  This means that the regulatory intervention is less intensive.
