A product with foreign writing on


I’m looking at picking up some plug adaptors at a decent price, but the product packaging is in mostly Spanish.
Obviousley im selling in the uk market place and its better to be in English by my question is, will amazon refuse to sell them because of this? I cant find the rules regarding this, thanks.


Hey @Outpost_Sales,

I would stick to English, as per our Help page, Electrical Goods Requirements: Plugs and Sockets, has this bit of text,

UK Regulations

There are a number of UK regulations and standards for safe and compliant UK plugs, and their use with electrical equipment.

The main UK regulations/standards include:

* Plugs and Sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994
* Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994
* Several BSI-approved standards e.g. BS 1363, BS 1362, BS 4573

And according to The plugs and sockets etc (safety) regulations 1994,

Part iii - Information requirements

12 Where it is necessary for the safe operation of any standard plug or conversion plug that the user should be aware of any particular characteristics, the necessary information must be given by markings on the plug or where this is not practicable, in a notice accompanying the plug. Any such instructions must be given in English.

Hope this helps!



Thanks, I wont bother with this product then
