Safety of electrical goods in the UK inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Scope of the inquiry

In 2014, the then Government announced that it would launch a review of the UK's systems of product recall and product safety.  This followed several fires where electrical goods were identified as the initial source of ignition.  In February 2016, Lynn Faulds Wood published her review, which the Government had commissioned.  Since the review there have been several further high profile fires and a continuing trend of incidents where electrical goods were identified as the cause.  

This inquiry looks at the current regimes of product safety and recall within the UK, what progress has been made since the Lynn Faulds Wood Review and what impact Brexit will have on these areas.
