In our last newsletter we made the statement “The Department of Fair Trading in New South Wales has recently been advising that the RCM mark may no longer be used to demonstrate compliance with electrical safety in their State.”
NSW now advises that this requirement only applies to NSW-issued certificates. They will accept the RCM marking for approvals as issued by other State Regulators. No decision has yet been reached on private certifier marks.
This would not preclude the use of the RCM to show compliance in other jurisdictions.
SAA Approvals is accredited by the Joint Accreditation Service of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) as a third party certification body to issue certificates for electrical equipment that has proven to comply with the safety requirements of the applicable Australian Standard.
SAA Approvals is accepted and gazetted by the New South Wales Fair Trading as a Recognised External Approvals Scheme (REAS) and Queensland Electrical Safety Office as a Recognised External Certification Scheme (RECS).
