The effected Schneider MCCB’s have been identified to pose a risk of overheating, potentially leading to a fire, smoke or in rare cases arc flash and do not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.

The safety report by the Office for Product Safety and Standards states:

The affected MCCBs may contain a non-conforming component, which may result in the circuit breaker not operating as intended under certain conditions. A short circuit on the electrical downstream network will not trigger the safety protection of the MCCB because of this non-conforming component. Consequently, high current will flow in the load, cable and MCCB, which may lead to fire and smoke depending on the size of the installation and of the short-circuit level. – Source:
