The product poses a risk of electric shock because: - there is a lack of fuses and they are of the incorrect size, - the requirements for creepage and clearance distances of basic insulation to accessible metal parts are not met. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335.


Pink sleeve with a box inside. No security seal, as there would be on the genuine product. Lack of seal shows that the product is counterfeit.

Product measurements (iron only, not lead): 26cm; W= 3cm. Labelled GHD.
