Electricity high risk declared article approval form
Please note: This page and the corresponding form are currently being updated following Energy Safety’s move to WorkSafe New Zealand. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance when applying for approval.
The approval application process
All electrical appliances in New Zealand must be safe. In addition to this, certain products - Declared High Risk Articles - must be approved for sale in New Zealand.
Energy Safety approval (or recognised certification) is required for a specific list of electrical appliances before these appliances can be legally sold in New Zealand.
The declared article system remains essentially the same under the new regime for the High Risk Items. The lists of products covered by the declared article regime (now Declared High Risk Articles) and the Medium Risk Declared Articles (old SDoC) are the same as applied previously, and existing DoC’s and Approvals also remain valid.
Please note: In order to have a declared article considered for approval, you must fully complete and submit the approval application form, accompanied by the prescribed fee of $408.89 (GST inclusive), to Energy Safety.
