It’s common knowledge electricity and cables aren’t something to play around with. So it would make sense to choose cables that are manufactured and tested to New Zealand standards. Yet it seems that businesses are more concerned with their bottom line than the safety of their customers, causing a myriad of problems later down the track.
Parts of the problem lies with the fact that the industry is self-regulated, there are no requirements for independent verification and approval that products sold in the local market actually comply with New Zealand Standards. A further problem lies in the fact that even defective cables can ‘look’ okay yet prove to be quite dangerous when connected to an electrical network.
These problems might be explanations to why poor quality cables still are being installed in New Zealand – but they are certainly no excuses for playing with people’s lives.
