Safety issue:

Risk of Fire

A non-compliant material has been used in the manufacture of a component. When operating under short circuit conditions the RCBO may put out ionised gases through the exhaust port which can lead to a fire.

Action required:

Building owners, managers and electrical contractors are urged to check switchboards or load centres for potentially affected RCBOs.

If you find a recalled RCBO model installed in a customer's premises, you should notify them about the recall and have them contact the supplier to arrange for a replacement RCBO to be installed:
