GSB warns against poor electrical cables


Accra, Oct. 28, GNA - The Ghana Standards Board (GSB) on Thursday said Yulan, Astro, Star, Metelmo and Alcobre electrical cables on the Ghanaian market were of poor quality and warned the public against using them.

A statement from GSB said the use of the cables for wiring could result in electrical fires and damage to life and property. It said tests GSB had conducted showed that the cables did not meet the minimum requirements of relevant standards, were poorly labelled and had no batch numbers.

The GSB said it was inviting all importers of electrical cables to the GSB on Thursday November 4 at 1000hours to discuss the standard requirement of electrical cables.
