I have a friend who's selling torches in NZ without an SDoC as he's had no clue about it all until just recently. We've read heaps of stuff on Work Safe and other places, but can't find any specific list that shows what standards meet NZ/AU standards. I asked Auckland Lab and they said he needs to send each product with the documentation for $260 + gst each. He just wanted info on all of this first, but seems they weren't interested to guide him on what to do. It would be great to know what standards are okay without wasting a heap of money if they don't qualify.
Currently he's in a bit of a state not knowing what to do with all his stock. As you can imagine this isn't an ideal situation and has no idea who to contact without getting into massive trouble.
Selling on Trade Me there should be more info that's sent to new "in trade" accounts about what's required.
I'm sure there's many, many sellers that have no clue about SDoC's, I've never even heard of it myself. I searched this forum and there's other threads, but no real help on the specific standards. It's all a bit overwhelming
Thanks for any help
