Impact for contractors
What you need to know about the AS/NZS 4417
When purchasing any cable, you want to know that the product is safe and has been tested regularly.
Unlike the Infinity cable fiasco, it's so important to make sure your product is compliant to regulatory standards.
Not just for the consumer’s sake, but for your sake too.
No one wants to suffer an electric shock or know that a person’s house has suffered a fire emergency because you’ve installed a faulty cable. This liability also creates cost for your business in fixing and rewiring the debacle.
Therefore when you are walking into a wholesaler, it is imperative that the cable you are purchasing is AS/NZS 4417 compliant. This will be shown via the RCM tick (right) printed either on the product or the packaging next to the model number. Alternatively, a Certificate of Approval number may be printed on the cable next to the model number.
