News BEAMA CONTINUES ANTI-COUNTERFEITING DRIVE


THE BEAMA ANTI- Counterfeit Working Group is continuing its campaign to raise awareness of counterfeit electrical products.


Some 11,000 of its


Counterfeit Kills fact sheets have been distributed nationwide. The fact sheets stress the need to be on the lookout for non-compliant or counterfeit electrical installation products.


The fact sheet provides information about the ‘big picture’ concerning the counterfeit problem worldwide and the dangers associated with such products.


BEAMA’s advice is always to be aware of deals which seem too good to be true – and also to avoid buying from unauthorised distributors and unauthorised websites.

campaign aims to encourage the installation and habitual use of RCDs. Every year in the UK about 70 people die and 1.2 million are injured in electrical accidents at home. The Plug into Safety campaign is working with all elements of the electrical industry – including industry bodies, RCD manufacturers, electricians, and wholesalers – to encourage householders to check their electrics and install RCD protection. Phil Buckle, director general at the ESC, said: ‘More than half of UK homes don’t have adequate RCD protection in their consumer units. We want to support the industry in leading the way in encouraging householders to install RCDs, and to take basic safety measures to ensure their homes and families are protected from the potential dangers of electricity.’ n To find out more visit www.esc.org.uk/ plugintosafety
