I just noticed that the fuse in a BS1363 plug was stamped with the nemko (Norwegian Standard) symbol.

What are they used for in Norway?


This is the symbol: will take a pic of the fuse at some stage

Mmmm I've just noticed Nemko are actually operating a testing facility in the UK hence the N = BS1363 complient.

[Linked Image from nemko.co.uk] Is still on most of them in IRL though.

Expect that to happen to all the previously national approvals. Competition!

As the BS1362 fuse is used only in the U.K., Irekand, and a few other British-influenced places, it seems rather odd, nevertheless.

Could it be a counterfeit sub-standard fuse from the far East?
We are frequently hearing of products with fake approval marks entering the UK market. I recall warnings about exploding plug fuses with false approvals.
BTW I had a look at some of the fuses in plugs around the house & lying in my tool trays, they all had the BSI Kitemark & ASTA approval marks, no other approvals.

DavidUK,

No they're fully approved to BS1362. Visit www.nemko.co.uk for more details they've agreements to approve to BS1363 & Irish Standard IS401 etc.

From the Nemko site:

"The majority of the certified plugs in the UK have been tested in our Laboratory. We now offer our own certification scheme and the mark as an alternative product certification mark. "

Funny.
