EU to UK plug adapter correct testing standard

#1
Hi all. Looking for advices.

Im trying to understand which standard/s is/are sufficient for UK compliance -> product: EU to UK plug adapter.
Standard BS 1363 - is just a specification for UK plug.
Found new BS 8546 standard for travel adapters, but not sure its correct for my case.

When you say an adapter is this just for temporary use? Or are you looking at providing this as an option in the box? With all of the purchase's we have which come with a European plug and an adapter we just cut it off and get our electrician to wire a UK plug on to ensure its secure in the socket.

Thanks for info. Yes it will be as an option in the box with main device. (not a good news for my colleagues responsible for that decision)

You could always buy a load of UK plugs which are probably cheaper than the adapter and throw one of them in the box as well lol. Its done usually due to the strength/security of the plug in the socket anything with an adapter always has the potential to be knocked pulled and lose its connection.

Thanks for answers, but I need exact answer on my quesiton.
