Cheap imports can be dangerous
The safety of items ordered from cheap Asian online shops is being questioned. Although these products appear to be of good quality, many are dangerous and potentially lethal. This is especially true of electrical appliances. It is often difficult for a consumer to know if the appliance has been tested correctly or if standards stickers are genuine. The CE safety marking required of devices sold in Europe ensures that the product complies with the essential requirements of the applicable EC directives. Products purchased from China often lack the CE marking.
