Medium risk products
Everyone who manufactures, imports, supplies, retails and trades electrical and/or gas appliances or fittings in New Zealand must ensure their products comply with New Zealand’s established regulatory framework. This applies whether the appliances or fittings are imported or domestically produced.
- 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.
- Medium Risk products are required to have a valid Supplier Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) is made prior to sale or offer for sale.
