It is not allowed to use “various” or “interchangeable” for critical components. Any critical components manufactured inside the product must be listed in the components’ table in the test report and photos, including markings must be in the test report. Here are the Equipment Safety Rules:
If the component has an IEC certificate, the details must be listed in the components’ table, as we will check these during the approval process.
Australian certificates are required for some critical components such as plugs, supply cords, cord-line switches and some lampholders.
If the component is tested in the appliance, the results must be supplied.
Resistance to flammability testing should be conducted on all critical components, especially capacitors. The capacitor standard does not have a provision for resistance to flammability, so the component certificate cannot be relied upon.
For any luminaire testing, the glow wire tests must be repeated on all components, even if they have been tested in their own standard. There are no exceptions. Here is the clause from AS/NZS 60598.1:
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).
