As you no doubt know already, we have a 5 working day service. Note that the time period starts from when we receive all the correct information. This means if we find something missing or incorrect in your application, we have to reset the clock to be fair to the applicants who have submitted everything correctly. Of course, we try and do everything as quickly as we can without compromise on quality. The process does take a full 5 days, so please let us have this time before you start chasing the approval.
There are more and more products being developed with multiple functions. It is vital that ALL functions of any equipment are tested and reported. Please think carefully about what needs to be tested or inquire with us before testing commences to make sure the application goes smoothly when we receive it.
We have had a meeting with the ERAC secretariat and we will report fully what the new requirements are in the next newsletter. There are many changes, but there is no reason to panic as there is an adequate transition period.
In Section 7 on the application form – please complete all the test report details and the Declaration section. It is a legal requirement of the SAA certification scheme, that the client declare the product complies to the Australian/NZ Standard. Forms that have not been completed correctly will be returned.

Once the transfer to complete please forward a remittance advice showing details of the payment.
