Electricity Regulations (Duosida IC-CPD) Notice 2020

Pursuant to Regulation 87 of the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010 (“Regulations”), I, Mark Stephen Wogan, Manager, Energy Safety, WorkSafe New Zealand, give the following notice:


1. Short Title and Commencement

  1. This notice is the Electricity Regulations (Duosida IC-CPD) Notice 2020.
  2. The prohibitions contained in this notice take effect on Monday 30 November 2020.

2. Prohibited Equipment

  1. The importation, sale (including an offer to sell) or use of the following electrical fitting as described in this notice, is prohibited: Duosida In Cable – Control and Protection Device (IC-CPD).

3. Description

The prohibited IC-CPD is further described as follows:

      1. The prohibited IC-CPD has an Electric Vehicle (EV) plug outlet, as defined in IEC 61851:2017.
      2. The prohibited IC-CPD was manufactured with an inlet that is a New Zealand AS/NZS 3112 plug.
      3. The purpose of the prohibited IC-CPD is to charge an electric vehicle.
      4. The following model number is prohibited:
        • 3030-PSE-10-5C-ES
      5. The prohibited IC-CPD may be identified by the following markings, including:
        • Duosida
        • Mode 2 EV Charging Cable
        • Type: 3030-PSE-10-5C-ES
        • Input: 220V AC 50/60Hz
        • Output: 220V AC 10AMPS 50/60Hz
        • Protection IP55
        • Reference standard: SAE J1772-2010

4. Reasons for Prohibition

        1. The prohibited IC-CPD is, or may be, electrically unsafe, in that there is significant risk that a person may suffer harm as a result of dangers arising from use of, or passage of electricity through, the prohibited IC-CPD.
        2. The reasons for believing the prohibited IC-CPD is or may be unsafe are that:
          1. The prohibited IC-CPD is labelled indicating that it is compatible with a voltage of 220 Volts which is not combatable with the New Zealand power supply.
          2. Excess voltages exceed the creepage and clearance distances under which the safety has been established, therefore protection against direct and indirect contact is compromised.

Dated at Wellington this 12th day of November 2020.
