Electrical safety requirements
In Australia, electrical safety compliance assessment is the responsibility of local governments. Each of the administrations unanimously adopts the Approvals Scheme of the Electrical Safety Act of 1945. This architecture divides electrical products into "Declared" and "Non-declared" categories. The notified product shall comply with the relevant Australian safety standards and obtain the certificate of approval of the state authority. Non-public electrical and electronic equipment can be sold without certification. However, retailers, manufacturers and importers must ensure that such electrical safety.
Australia's requirements for EMC are self-proclaimed by the EMC architecture (1992 Radiocommunication Act). The electrical products specified in this framework must comply with the Australian standards and are approved by the Australian Communications Authority in order to use the C-Tick logo.
If the product also meets the electrical safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements, can also apply for regulatory compliance signs (RCM).
Any product that obtains the Australian safety sign is recognized in New Zealand.
