Thanks for that. Seems to be a regular occurrence!

I can't for the life of me understand how this imported rubbish that "is supposed" to conform to standards ends up on sale here.

It must be very frustrating for Aussie manufacturing (the likes of Schneider electric Clipsal) that have to confirm to strict laws when importers clearly import this rubbish & have no regard for standards.
