How safe are my electrical goods?

If your electrical appliances display the EU’s ‘CE’ mark, they are considered to be safe.

Please be aware that the Chinese Export mark is very similar.

If you have doubts about any of your appliances, please contact the manufacturer to find out more. Their website will also let you know if they've recalled any of their products.

In general, we recommend that you turn off any appliance immediately if it begins to make a different noise, runs differently or gives off a burning smell. You should also inspect the appliance, lead and plug for any damage.

If you cannot see an issue, please contact a technician to repair the appliance or dispose of it safely.

If you are disposing of an electrical item, please remember to cut off the plug and lead once disconnected from the mains – this will help prevent someone from reusing it.
