February 27, 2019 – CSA Group has notified the public of a counterfeit version of its certification mark appearing on various models of General International Manufacturing’s magnetic safety switches (examples pictured).

The devices in question range from 110 to 600 V. Contrary to appearances, CSA has not tested, inspected or certified them to applicable standards.

There has already been one reported incident where a switch failed to operate as intended. CSA recommends users remove the switches from service—and resellers and distributors stop selling them—immediately.

Customers who wish to verify can certifications for authenticity are encouraged to check CSA’s certified product listing.
