Trust you to find a dodgy GFI, Randy.
But, the question has to asked, what
exactly are the authorities doing about all this imported foreign junk?.
As I've said here more than once, one day someone is going to get seriously injured or killed under the false sense of security, that the device they have installed, will trip upon a ground fault, I've seen some here that come from the same place and they don't do what they say they will.
This is an absolute travesty, who is going to carry the can if someone does get killed?, the installer?, the importer?, or the manufacturer (if they can be found)?
It's high time that the counterfeiting of electrical protection equipment was stamped out before something bad really does happen!
Now, I'm not conversant with the workings of UL, to my knowledge they are a test lab only, but, could they bring a case against companies overseas using fraudulent test certifications, especially where their own test certifications are being falsified?
We even get light fittings and God-knows what else here with a UL approval on them, this is looked at as dodgy for a start, because UL is not really a recognised test lab here, we usually use a NZ or Aussie one, for type-approval after importation.
It's a mine-field out there these days, and we were told globalisation would benefit everyone.
