Mandatory Reporting Requirements
Ontario Regulation 438/07, Product Safety specifies that manufacturers, supply chains, wholesalers, importers, product distributors, retailers, certification bodies and field evaluation agencies must report when they become aware of a serious electrical incident or accident, or a defect in an electrical product that affects or is likely to affect the safety of any person or cause damage to property.
On July 1, 2008 the sections of Ontario Regulation 438/07 that require organizations to report serious electrical incidents or defects came into effect.
The Electrical Safety Authority has provided a form to report serious electrical incidents or defects.
