Changes to Electrical Plug Requirements for the UAE

ESMA has granted a 6-month extension period, where ESMA-approved non-removable plug adaptors shall still be allowed until 30 June 2013, provided the adaptors are permanently installed with the product.  This is in reference to the ESMA decision dated 2 January 2012, reference number C.A.D/14/2012 regarding the use of ESMA-approved non-removable plug adaptors. 
ESMA-approved non-removable plug-adaptors compliant with UAE.S.BS 1363-5:2010 were allowed until 31 December 2012 for Manufacturers and Traders to comply with this requirement. This ensures that safe adaptors are used for all electrical appliances and equipment.
