The Swiss market surveillance authority ESTI, has positively completed the review of the Easee documentation for Home and Charge.

Last week, we received the expected positive news from the Federal Inspectorate for Heavy Current Installations (ESTI). They informed us that the examination of the submitted documents regarding product documentation and product safety of the charging station models Easee Home and Charge has been successfully completed.

One year following the Swedish Electrical Safety Authority’s (Elsäkerhetsverket) decision to implement a sales ban for Home and Charge in Sweden, ESTI confirms that the documentation of the Easee charging stations complies with the applicable requirements March 14, 2024. 

– We are very happy about this. It proves that the proactive approach we have taken towards authorities following the sales ban in Sweden, have been successful. We will continue to prioritize compliance and collaboration with authorities, says Easee CEO Erik Færevaag. 

The sales ban in Sweden was due to the lack of correct technical documentation prior to the launch of the products Easee Home and Charge, and declaration of conformity not meeting required formalities. 

Comprehensive testing and updated documentation

Although Switzerland is not part of the EU, the Swiss regulations are based on EU regulations. In practice, this means that Swiss authorities make similar assessments as other member countries when it comes to product safety. 

Easee has been convinced of the safety of the Easee charging stations at all times and has thoroughly tested the products together with world-leading, independent and accredited test laboratories and updated the technical documentation. 

– After TÜV SÜD has already tested Easee Home and Easee Charge chargers and confirmed the safety of the charging stations in a statement, we are very pleased that the ESTI has now also been able to successfully complete the documentation review, says Færevaag. 

We thank ESTI for their valuable work and would like to highlight the support by our Swiss partner Simplee.
