Do consumers who are selling a used second-hand product have to make sure that it complies with the mandatory standard?
No. Only businesses supplying second-hand products in trade or commerce have to ensure they meet safety requirements. But if you are selling or giving away a second-hand product it is wise for the protection of others to ensure the product has:
- all parts in good working order
- instructions for assembly
- instructions for safe use
