Please help us to help you by endorsing reports with the accreditation logo (eg CNAS or NATA or IANZ or similar). Or if it is a CB report, send us the CB certificate. If the report is sent in this format, we guarantee a quicker turnaround. If we cannot have the report with endorsement, we will require firm evidence that the laboratory in question is accredited for the testing, their equipment is calibrated and the report signatory is also accredited.
Every time you make an application with us, you are required to sign the application form stating that the terms and conditions and your obligations have been read and agreed to. If you are acting as a consultant, it is important that these obligations are communicated to the applicant. So, it would be a great idea if you read them! Please do so, because it tells you exactly what we need from you to make your application go through quickly and contains information about your legal obligations in Australia and NZ once you or the company you represent start selling the product in the market. https://www.saaapprovals.com.au/files/S-0110_Conditions_&_Obligations.pdf.
There is a list on our website of declared articles with definitions of exactly what is declared and which standards to use. We keep it updated according to the NSW gazette notice and we would urge you to look here http://www.saaapprovals.com.au/files/Declaring_Definitions_for_Electrical_Products.pdf. This will tell you whether your product is mandatory for a Certificate of Approval or not.
The application form is the key to us being able to get your application processed quickly and correctly. There is an excellent guide on our website which takes you through the process: https://www.saaapprovals.com.au/files/S-0021_Approval_App_Guide.pdf. Please have a read/refresher before you do your next application!
