Electrical equipment 'Don't DIY' warning signs - Queensland


 If you run a business that sells certain types of electrical equipment to the public in Queensland, from 1 July 2011 you must display 'Don't DIY' warning signs.

This applies to face-to-face as well as online selling but generally does not apply to garage sales, jumble sales, fetes - unless a person sells at these events as part of a business. To give you time to comply with the new signage requirement, selling electrical equipment without the appropriate signs will only attract a fine after 31 December 2011.
