Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock because: - the lamp has no cord anchorage and the mains cable conductors are therefore insufficiently protected against tension and twisting; - the mains switch does not have any strain relief; - the cross-section of the mains cable is less than 0.5 mm² (the required measurement is 0.75 mm²), which does not provide sufficient mechanical strength; - wires with basic insulation can be touched at the point they enter the lamp housing; - all inscriptions required by the standard, such as the manufacturer's data, the rated voltage,  the Protection Class II-symbol, the type or order number and the rated power of the bulb are missing; - the warnings are not in German. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
