EESS Electrical Equipment Safety (RCM)
Electrical equipment safety in Australia and New Zealand is covered by a regulatory scheme known as the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS), administered by the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC).  Certain equipment types (including but not limited to common kitchen and laundry appliances, luminaires and lampholders, extension powerboards, chargers and adapters, heaters, electric tools) must be submitted for ERAC Equipment Certification* by an electrical safety regulator or recognized certification body in Australia or New Zealand.
 
Before electrical equipment can be sold in Australia or New Zealand the local supplier and their certified equipment must be registered on the EESS, and compliance records and declarations of conformity must be prepared and held. Depending on the type of equipment there may be additional requirements under ACMA (radio and telecoms) and GEMS (energy efficiency) regulations. When all EESS and ACMA requirements have been met the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) label must be affixed to the equipment prior to supply.
 
Compliance International can assist manufacturers and suppliers with all parts of the EESS, including ERAC Equipment Certification (SAA certification), supplier and equipment registration, compliance record keeping and issuing of declarations of conformity and declarant services.   * In many markets (and especially China) electrical equipment certification is commonly referred to as SAA approval for historical reasons - the peak standards body in Australia between 1929–1988 was the Standards Association of Australia (SAA).
