The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is warning suppliers and installers of degrading Infinity cables, including DIY homeowners, to take action before months of hot weather could cause the cables to become brittle and put lives at risk. Property owners are also being urged to take action to avoid serious risks.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is urging electricians and builders to replace dangerous Infinity electrical cables that were installed in up to 40,000 homes and businesses throughout Australia.
In an address to Master Builders Australia today, ACCC Deputy Chair Dr Michael Schaper said that the ACCC and its state and territory fair trading counterparts are engaging with building regulators to encourage safety-based procurement practices in the building product sector.
There is faulty electrical cabling in thousands of Australian homes and businesses. Time is running out before the cables become a fire or electrocution risk. Act now before it’s too late—get your cable checked.
