Telecommunications equipment is communications or networking equipment with interface(s) to public network or wide area network (WAN) services. Common telecom network interfaces include T1/E1, ISDN BRI, ISDN PRI, ADSL, serial and analogue PSTN.

Compliance International can help you understand how the following approval requirements apply to your telecom equipment products:

A-Tick

Telecommunications equipment in Australia must be labeled to demonstrate compliance with technical standards for telecommunications, EMC, and safety.

Labeling must be backed up by compliance records, which include Declarations of Conformity, signed by an Australian citizen. The compliance records are held by an Australian supplier or agent, whose Supplier Code Number (SCN) is printed on the product labeling.

For over 15 years Compliance International has supported conformity assessment in Australia for some of the world's best known names in telecommunications equipment through our Australia office. We can help you achieve compliance in Australia with our turnkey solution that includes preparing and maintaining compliance records to allow you to use our registered supplier code number on product labeling without having your own presence in Australia.

State Safety Certification

Under Australia's Electrical Safety Act of 2002, AC power adapters are required to have safety certification issued by the electrical safety regulator of one of Australia's states. This is entirely separate from the ACMA labeling DoC requirements.

State safety approval is generally issued based on existing test reports, but a local applicant is required.
