True it is not from the LVD but if I was acting 26 Practical Guide to the Low Voltage Directive as expert witness for the prosecution that is one route that I would suggest. 9 Permanently fixing the fuse holder will prevent the user fitting a fuse. 9 Using non-conductive wire will prevent the purchaser from cutting the dummy plug off and fitting a real one. 9 Removing internal wiring will prevent anyone from transforming a potentially non-comphant equipment into a potentially lethal product. This analysis may be more than is strictly necessary within the current scope of the LVD - but it illustrates the considerations that we should make and document.

This leaves the possible argument: 1. The digital output was intended to be used with information technology and office equipment. 2. The relevant Harmonized Standard for the interface is E N 60950. 3. The designer failed to take note of this. 4. The designer had a dut3, of care not to place the operator at unnecessary, risk. 5. The designer was negligent and failed in that duty. 6. The manufacturer placed a non-compliant product upon the market.
