Project Summary

The project goal is to increase regulatory collaboration between member economies to improve the safety of electrical or electronic equipment traded in the region. 

In the first stage, New Zealand surveyed regulatory agencies of member economies about domestic and similar products they consider to be of most high risk to their population, as current, new or emerging EE products, or resulting from non-compliance to a relevant Standard or from reported incidents. Information to reflect knowledge of regulatory agencies and industry experts. 

A list of products and perceived and assessed risk factors was created identifying common product concerns. 

Stage 2 of the project now proposes to collect information on the specific products that each of the JRAC member economies control with a premarket requirement including SDoCs, type approvals and other regulatory interventions as set out in ISO/IEC 17067. 

The information sought will include the number of different interventions, level of intervention and the mechanism used to determine the products subject to each intervention and the changes made to the products listing in recent years and the drivers for any changes. 

The information will assist member economies operating risk assessment tools as part of their regulatory systems. 

The survey and analysis will be completed by July 2019 with findings presented to JRAC in August. It is proposed to combine this information with the results of stage 1 to create a list of products which will be used as the basis of an information interchange and hazard alert system. 

New Zealand will circulate a proposed hazard alert and incident format in June 2019 seeking adoption at the JRAC meeting in August.
