Electrical chargers must comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations which require manufacturers to only put safe products on the market. These Regulations are primarily enforced by Local Authority Trading Standards.

The Government is now considering a recommendation made by the Working Group on Product Recalls and Safety to provide more central capacity to support consumers on product safety, including with regard to electrical products, and we will respond to that recommendation in due course.
