I believe their products have to meet the same H&S standards as everyone else's in order to sell in, for example, the EU.

While true, a lot do not.

The liability for ensuring compliance lies with the entity that imported it into the EU.

Unfortunately, Trading Standards apear to only be interested in going after fake handbags, and have no time for dangerous electrical kit. Possibly not even after someone gets killed by them.
