General Products Safety Regulations 1994
The General Product Safety Regulations 1994 require landlords to ensure that products supplied in their property are not only safe but that they provide the tenant with instruction manuals and information sheets. These Regulations act as secondary legislation to the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and relate to any business which supplies plugs, sockets, adapters or fuses intended for domestic use, (with a working voltage of not less than 200 volts), correctly fitted with a fused and approved UK three-pin plug (BS 1363) or approved “conversion plug”. The conversion plug is a device which may be used with a conforming socket and which is designed to enable a non-UK plug to be used with it. All this also applies to any appliances with a plug fitted that may be supplied.
