The product does not comply with the labelling requirements of mandatory standard AS/NZS 2640:1994 Portable ramps for vehicles.

What are the hazards?

Misuse of the portable ramp may occur as a result of missing instructions for use and labelled markings.

This may result in serious injury or death.
