New requirements for RCBOs

ESV has imposed additional requirements on the supply of RCBOs (known as RCDs) that are designed to be permanently fixed to household or similar electrical wiring in Victoria.

Suppliers must undertake additional testing and verification that will ensure their products still operate satisfactorily if there is a defect in the installation or if the product has been installed incorrectly
