SAA is accredited by the New Joint Accreditation Agency of Australia and New Zealand (JAA NZ). This enables us to provide a regulated electrical equipment certificate, a safety certificate for electrical equipment demonstrating compliance with applicable Australian/New Zealand standards. required and recognised in Australia and anywhere.
Product Safety Certification
Australia does not have a unified safety certification mark, and each state or region has legislation to regulate the management of electrical products. Although the names and enactment dates differ, the electrical safety legislation in each state or territory is basically the same. Electrical control products are divided into electrical (prescribed product) and non-regulated products (Non-prescribed product).
Applicable product range
Products controlled by SAA certification can be divided into two categories: mandatory electronic products and non-mandatory electronic products:
1. The declared electrical products cover 56 categories of products, such as external power supplies or chargers, wires, plugs, electrical appliances, lamps, etc. The supervision appliance needs to obtain the approval certificate issued by the supervision department, that is, SAA certification, and identification proof (must indicate the certificate number).
2. Non-declared electrical products refer to non-compulsory certification products, such as commercial kitchen appliances. While non-regulated products are not required to be certified, their safety is the responsibility of the seller/manufacturer, who can voluntarily apply for certification. The monitoring department will issue a certificate of applicability to products that meet the standard requirements. The electrical products that have obtained the certificate of conformity can be marked with the certificate number, and the last letter of the certificate indicates which country or region issued the certificate.
Electromagnetic Safety Requirements
In addition to the safety label, the electrical and electronic products entering Australia should also have the EMC mark, that is, the c-tick mark. The purpose is to protect the resources of the radio communication frequency band, and it stipulates that the system implementation is somewhat similar to the European EMC Directive, so it can be provided by the manufacturer/importer on their own. However, the C-tick mark in the application must be tested according to the relevant CISPR standards. And approved and reported by Australian importers. The Australian ACA (Australian Communications Authority) accepts all and issues a registration number.
The electromagnetic compatibility of Australia is monitored by ACA (Australian Communications Authority). In the Australian EMC system, products are divided into three categories. Manufacturers apply for registration with the ACA C-TICK mark before selling the second and third categories of products.
1. Use wireless devices to interfere with products with lower radiation spectrum, such as manual switches, simple relays, one-way squirrel-cage induction motors, resistors, etc.
2. Products that use wireless devices to interfere with higher radiation spectrum, such as switching power supplies, electric welding machines, dimmers, and most household appliances.
