BSMI and the Consumers Foundation Jointly Released Test Results of Electric Ovens
The Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI), Ministry of Economic Affairs, in collaboration with the Consumers Foundation released the test results of electric ovens randomly purchased from the market to check their compliance with relevant requirements. 10 electric toasters were purchased from points of display in Yilan, Keelung and Taipei in the second half of 2020. They were subject to labeling checks, comparison of key components and testing of quality items. All of them pass the checks and testing.


The BSMI urges online sellers, when selling a product subject to mandatory inspection online, to make the information of Commodity Inspection Mark or Commodity Inspection Certificate available on the web page that the product is displayed for sale. Consumers are recommended to contact the online seller or online platform immediately when the products purchased do not comply with the requirements. The BSMI continues working with online platforms to educate online sellers to sell safe products and remove/inactivate web pages selling potentially unsafe products to protect consumers.


The BSMI indicated that electric ovens are subject to mandatory inspection and are not allowed to be released from production premises or imported before completion of the inspection procedures. The BSMI implements an annual market surveillance program to continuously monitor the safety of products on the market. In case non-compliant products are found, the BSMI looks into the causes, makes an interview report and take actions in accordance with relevant regulations.
