These regulations operate alongside the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010(external link) to prescribe the specific regulatory environment including enforcement provisions. These regulations implement the Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) export control component of the New Zealand- China free trade agreement.
