Electrical Approvals 澳洲电气

在澳大利亚,电磁兼容由 ACMA- Australian Communications and Media Authority监控,称RCM认证(于2016年3月1号取代A-Tick/C-Tick)。RCM通常只对EMC干扰部分有要求。供应商根据销售产品的种类通过labelling notices选择Testing Body和Accredited testing body,必须在 ACMA 注册申请使用RCM 标志。在 ACMA 注册申请使用 RCM标志的申请人只限于在澳大利亚或新西兰的注册公司, 详细参见https://www.acma.gov.au/technical-standards 目前以下产品不需要RCM: cables/connectors/distributors/patch panels。
有关电气安全SAA澳大利亚认证:所有在澳大利亚或者新西兰斯出售的電器貨品都必須符合Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2004 和法案的條例的要求,這法例涵蓋銷售安全的電器用品和其他電器貨品,法例提及62個種別的電器設備。在這些類別的電器設備,稱為強制認證商品(declared articles),在可以出售前,必須經過測試和獲得認可。強制認證商品必須獲得新南威爾斯州的NSW Fair Trading、在另一澳洲的州的同等機構或獨立的保證機構的認可。所有其他電器商品(非強制認證商品(non-declared articles))必須是可以安全使用的。完整的強制認證商品(declared articles)商品清單,可參見Fair Trading網頁 Electrical appliances and equipment requirements for their sale in NSW。要知道商品是否獲得認可,最簡單的檢查方法是看看商品是否具備認可的標誌,獲得認可的電器貨品通常具備一個包括大寫字母(對應核准的州或領地),跟著是證明書的編號,有些細小的商品可能獲准使用其他的認可標誌(例如:商品名稱)。下一段展示在NSW可以接受的認可標誌。您接受交付、或銷售任何法例包括的電器貨品前,確保您的供應商給提供一份獲確認的澳洲認可證明書(Certificate of Approval)。SAA (Standards Association of Australia) 其实是一个标准研究所,主管标准的制定和修订。SAA认证或者SAA mark是过去的说法。海外認可證明書(Overseas Certificates of Approval)及認可標誌,例如CE標誌,在澳洲是不被接受的。

Australia Electrical Product Certification Services
Consumer electrical equipment as supplied in Australia is classified as either:
Declared Articles - equipment as defined in Appendix E2 of AS/NZS 4417.2 which are required to be approved before supply or offer to supply in Australia or
Non-declared articles - equipment not covered in AS/NZS 4417.2 Appendix E2 and which may be supplied to the public without first being approved.
If you are selling declared articles, you should, prior to accepting delivery of goods: insist that your supplier provides you with a copy of an ‘Australian’ Certificate of Approval and confirm that an approval mark appears on the electrical articles and accessories. Overseas Certificates of Approval and approval marks are not acceptable in Australia.
Under certain conditions your supplier may guarantee compliance with requirements and may become liable in your stead. The maximum penalty for selling, importing, hiring or exchanging unmarked or unapproved electrical goods is $82,500 and/or two years imprisonment for an individual or $825,000 for a corporation.
A Safety Test Report shall be the original or a certified copy of one of the following:
1) A NATA endorsed report
2) An endorsed report from a laboratory with which NATA has a MRA
3) A CB test report and certificate issued under the IECEE CB Scheme.
4) A report from a testing laboratory which is determined by all relevant regulators to meet standards of competency not inferior to those above, and which is recognised, certified or accredited within its own country by an appropriate national body, or internationally by similar bodies (eg GS Scheme for Germany).
