SRI LANKA: 13-Amp Square Pin Plugs Mandatory for All New Electrical Appliances

All electrical appliances produced in/imported to Sri Lanka must be fitted with 13-Amp square-pin plugs (Type G in line with British Standard (BS) 1363) as of 16 August. This follows the adoption of such plugs as the national standard for both commercial and residential use.

As a consequence, the sale of all non-standard plugs and sockets, including round-pin BS 546 models, will be banned from August 2018.
