The safety of refurbished or second-hand equipment is controlled by these regulations. All persons who supply electrical equipment in the course of business, including auctions, must ensure that the equipment is safe. Whilst there is no mandatory requirement for refurbished or second-hand equipment to undergo any safety testing, suppliers will want to ensure that the equipment is safe so as to avoid committing an offence under the Regulations.
The safety requirements of the Regulations cover all aspects of safety and are not limited to electrical safety.
