Registering appliances will help with safety and savings

Statistics show at least 100 million appliances in the UK are untraceable if recalled. A campaign, launched by the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA), is urging homeowners, landlords and tenants to make use of their free appliance register to get important safety alerts.

Hand in hand with International Product Safety Week, taking place 14 – 17 November 2022, AMDEA wants to highlight the benefits of their portal, allowing users and owners to register small and large appliances, whether new, second-hand or inherited in a property move.

The #registermyappliance campaign is endorsed by Fire & Rescue Services nationwide, safety and consumer groups, and provides access to over 60 leading appliance brands sold in the UK.

Safety of tenants

Appliances provided by social housing, or privately rented homes, and those in multi-occupancy dwellings are all eligible for free registration. Landlords can keep machines in peak condition and ensure they are on the radar for necessary safety notifications or repairs to make sure they last as long as possible, save money and keep their tenants safe.

Household safety

Registering an appliance is an easy and quick process that applies to all items. By simply clicking on the relevant brand logo the user reaches a data entry form linked directly to the correct manufacturer.  

No proof of purchase is required, and many manufacturers accept the registration of products at least 12 years old. It also offers:

  • A listing of appliance safety repairs and recalls 
  • Hints and tips on household safety 
  • Recommendations for appliance care   

Manufacturers can trace products and safeguard owners effectively with safety alerts and can even make arrangements for free safety advice or repairs if they are needed.

With household costs rising, we suspect there may be a growing market for pre-loved electricals, as well as those actively looking to recycle rather than buy new. Keeping machines in peak condition and ensuring they are on the radar for necessary safety notifications or repairs are simple ways to make sure they last as long and keep everyone safe.
