Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) and Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA)

The EESS (Electrical Equipment Safety System) is designed to make sure that all electrical equipment is safe to use and free from hazards in Australia & New Zealand.

Note that the electrical equipment covered by EESS regulations comprises a rated voltage of:

  • Greater than 120V ripple-free DC or 50 AC RMS
  • Less than 1500V ripple-free DC and 1000V AC RMS – these are specifically designed for small scale use

Electrical devices are categorized into three levels for EESS

  • Level 1 Electrical Equipment – These are low-risk devices
  • Level 2 Electrical Equipment – These are medium risk devices
  • Level 3 Electrical Equipment – These are high-risk devices

These cover all commercial/industrial (prescrived devices) and domestic devices sold within the Australian and New Zealand Markets.

Similarly, ACMA maintains specific requirements for all products being distrubted on the Australian market.

These requirements are not only limited to electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC), but also Bluetooth and WI-FI enabled devices and anything that emits a radio signal.
Again these are segregated into 3 risk classes depending on the impact of the product.

FAQ

Are There Some Rules or Terms After I Get the Product Approved?

Yes, but this is dependent on the risk class of the device and the type of device or device family that is registered. The approval applies to the specific device or device family. It does not matter if the same device has been registered and approved by another organization.

Does certification expire? What to Do Before the Certification Expires?

In some cases, certification has a prescribed time limit and, as such, you must apply for certificate renewal. Contact us and one of our experts will assist you right away.

Is It Necessary to Approve all Products a Brand Sell?

Not all products require formal approval. Some products can be self declared and others require specific approval from certified authorities. In either case, you must show and maintain evidence of how your product remains safe and meets any prescribed performance standards.

I Have High-Risk Electrical Products, What Should I Do?

In Australia and New Zealand, all high-risk electrical products must undergo a specific type of process for testing and registering. Contact us to help you determine if your product is within this class and what to do.
