I'm baffled as to what legally can be done to stop people buying 3 components from Farnell / RS Components and stopping them from joining them together with cable. Maybe it's the EVSE Protocol Controller...and, as was alluded to earlier, some of the charging stations represented by UK EVSE use the same Mainpine manufacture EVSE Protocol Controller with their own badges on them.
Then there is OPEN EVSE in the states (LINK
) using, again, commercially available components to build the brains of any charging station.
I'm going to be all leftfield again; how about UK EVSE produce a sticker or leaflet that could be issued with anyone buying such items stipulating that a thorough safety check by a Part P qualified electrician should be undertaken before connection to an electrical supply or electric car. Kind of exactly the same words used by @Kevin Sharpe
in the EVSE Build Day

But there I go again, collaborative joined up thinking that helps everyone. Back to the legal threats and oppression.
