Region: Europe and EFTA Countries

Regulator: European Commission

Description: Electrical and electronic products sold in the European market must be CE marked. The application of the CE mark requires compliance with various European directives depending on the type of product. Commonly applied EU Directives include EMC, electrical safety (LVD), Radio and Telecommunications (R&TTE), Machine Directive and Medical Devices.

Legal Requirements:

  • The product must be tested to relevant harmonised standards. Most products require comprehensive emissions and immunity testing.
  • Relevant test reports shall be held by the supplier as evidence of compliance to the harmonised standards/directives
  • Suppliers must complete and sign a Declaration of Conformity Statement which lists all the applicable directives and harmonised standards which the product complies with
  • The CE mark must be affixed to the product.
  • For certain equipment/standards a notified body must sign-off on the test reports

RCM logo  RCM (Regulatory Compliance Mark) – Australian and New Zealand compliance requirements

Specialising in C-tick, A-tick, RCM compliance

Region: Australia and New Zealand

Regulator: Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA)

Description: Electrical and electronic products sold into the Australian and New Zealand market must be RCM compliant and must undergo RCM testing. This involves EMC testing (Electromagnetic Compatibility, ie C-tick testing), EMR testing (Electromagnetic Radiation), Radiofrequency communications testing, Telecommunications testing (ie A-tick testing), safety testing and associated certification. The RCM label can only be used when the product complies with all applicable mandatory standards.

Legal Requirements:

  • RCM testing must be completed on each product to applicable ACMA RCM standards. For EMC compliance, only emissions testing is required. Immunity testing is not mandatory however highly recommended by ACMA to increase product reliability. Harmonics and Flicker testing (IEC 61000-3-2 and IEC 61000-3-3) is also not required.

  • Depending on the classification (low, medium or high risk) different levels of proof of compliance are required. Some products are exempt from RCM testing. If in doubt, we will be happy to guide you.
  • Relevant RCM test reports must be held by the supplier as evidence of compliance to the relevant RCM standards.
  • Suppliers must register on the ACMA/ERAC National Database and if mandatory RCM safety standards apply, they must also register the product on the database
  • Suppliers must complete and sign a Declaration of Conformity Statement which lists all the applicable RCM standards which the product complies with. (EMC, EMR, Wireless, Telecoms, Safety)
  • The RCM (or soon to be phased out C-tick, A-tick) mark must be affixed to the product after compliance has been established.
  • NATA test reports are highly recommended to ensure report acceptance. ACMA advises that in case of a dispute, a NATA endorsed reports is always accepted as proof of ACMA compliance.
  • Certain products (such as Power Adapters or Chargers) known as “prescribed or declared articles” must also be:
    • Tested for electrical safety by an accredited laboratory (click here for safety testing services)
    • A Certificate of Conformity obtained from an accredited Certification Body
    • Registered on the ERAC national database as an RCM Responsible Supplier
    • A Responsible Supplier can delegate the ERAC registration to their ERAC Authorised Representative.
  • Note that products employing wireless and telecoms will generally require test reports for Telecoms, Wireless, EMC, Safety and EMR/SAR.

 

EMC Technologies can provide all the above services including arrangements for ACMA certification, ACMA registration and RCM Registration.
