Used Goods & Product Safety

imageDo 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
