Hi saw some arlec 4 gang light switches on special at the local hardware. The packet says complies to nz and aus standards. Is that all that is needed or ??

switches are a Declared Medium Risk Article, so an SDoC is required.

For reliability long term I would not be using Arlec. Personal choice but does not last switching normal loads.

Thanks for your reply's. Will ask bunnings for a suplyers document. Only $4.00 so may risk them, i suppose they are not a big seller , so possibly the reason for dropping the price. An hpm or pdl 4 gang switch is considerably more.

There's a reason for that
