I have been part of an Advisory Committee to Standards Australia regards the Safety Issues concerning Himalayan Salt Lamps. I invited a number of other importers to play key roles to develop standards for Himalayan Salt Lamps in Australia. The report has been tabled to the Standards Australia working committee and we expect to see Himalayan Salt Lamps added with various restrictions, to the Standard AS/NZS 60598.2.4 within the very near future. This will require that non Certified Suppliers must cease selling this product. This will make the product safer and the market place fairer.

NEW Safety Compliance Registration: The NEW Standard which on an interim level came into affect June 2015 must comply with Electrical Safety Standard AS/NZS 60598.2.4. ALL importers of Salt Luminaires must have the full certification in order to sell this appliance in the near future. The seller does not have to provide copies of the Certification, but they are obliged to confirm if they hold the certification when asked by a consumer or wholesale buyer. Failure to comply with the standard renders the “Importer” liable to prosecution not the wholesale buyer or end user. The requirement for Safety Compliance of Salt Lamp Electrical Appliances (Salt Luminaire) in the Australian Market will become Mandatory.   The Requirements C-Tick Salt Luminaires MUST be supplied with C-Tick Certification to Australian Standards as shown above. This means they have been approved for use in Australia for fire and electrical safety.
