Register Your Electrical Appliances with EEESafe's National Appliance Safety Register
EEESafe based in Swansea have launched the National Appliance Safety Register. The purpose of the Register is to give Consumers a Free Safety Check of their White Goods Appliances in the home to ensure they are not already a part of a Product Recall. A Recall may mean there is a danger of a malfunction or electrical fault that could be the cause of a fire.
EEESafe's National Appliance Safety Register will monitor appliances on Consumers behalf. They can provide reports to the Consumer or Landlord (including Housing Association's) as part of the service. The appliances can be registered online to the address and an appointed code is given to the Consumer or Landlord so they may receive the reports. NPT Homes will shortly be committing to have all its properties covered by the service.
It is hoped that Registrants will donate their old appliances to EEESafe when they are being replaced, and they will GIVE the items to local responsible reapairers registered with EEESafe. You can also help EEESafe by working with their retail partners who supply new appliances as an online purchase. They agree not to take the Old Appliance away from the community so that a local tradesman can have more work, and lower cost appliances are available to help those who cannot afford one. Please click here to purchase via the EEESafe Affiliate Scheme. Groups that purchase Refurbished Appliances are advised to look for the "Approved Refurbished Appliance Labels."
Every new purchase madse from the link will attract a £1 donation into EEESafe's Community Trust fund which aims to prevent waste, create local jobs and regenerate local communities.
