The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) makes available information on recalled electrical products through its dedicated product recall website.

The Government urges consumers to register their electrical products with manufacturers as the easiest way for consumers to stay informed on any safety issues. Consumers can access the Register My Appliance service through the OPSS product recall site.
