Selling and supplying electrical equipment

If your business imports or manufactures electrical equipment, you must ensure that the products you supply or sell are electrically safe and meet the relevant standard(s).

There are additional legislative requirements for the sale of household goods to ensure the consumer is safe. If your business imports or locally manufactures any in-scope electrical equipment, you will need to register it on the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS), and be registered as a responsible supplier.

If you sell in-scope electrical equipment, but are not the importer or manufacturer of electrical products, you still need to ensure the equipment was imported or manufactured by a registered responsible supplier.

This guide explains your obligations as a supplier or seller of electrical equipment.
