The type of approved action required to be taken under the recall may need to include the following… Totally remove and replace all cabling if easy access. If in an existing dwelling that is not fully accessable, remove and replace any cable in accessible areas for example in roof spaces or under the floor, (unless it is in an appropriate conduit or “tube” for protecting electrical wiring). Other measures required are, remove and replace cable installed close to heat sources. For the cable left installed in appropriate cable conduit or in inaccessible wall spaces you will need an appropriate electrical safety switch installed for additional protection. Ensure the electrical meter box or switchboard has an appropriate warning sticker on it if cable is left installed at the premises.
