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
Read more about the new requirements for suppliers in our safety alert page – RCBOs (known as residual current devices or RCDs).
The requirements are listed in the document Additional testing and verification requirements for RCBOs.
