Using such products could be deadly.
After 4 years of investigation and legal procedure, in a recent landmark case Mr Abdool Kadar Omar Khan was convicted in the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court for importing nearly 124 000 counterfeit earth leakage devices and circuit breakers.
Not only are the products counterfeit, they also do not meet compulsory specifications and are unsafe. Miniature circuit breakers are essential safety devices. These counterfeit products installed in buildings will not perform their intended function.
