Queensland electrical equipment certification
You can apply for Australian certification of electrical equipment to an Australian certifier under the Recognised External Certification Scheme (RECS) or a Regulatory Authority (Regulator).
A certificate is issued by a RECS or Regulator to show that an item of equipment has been independently assessed and meets the relevant standards, and is electrically safe.
There are 2 types of certificates:
- Certificate of Conformity: for in-scope electrical equipment risk Level 3, also known as 'Certificate of Approval'
- Certificate of Sustainability (voluntary): for in-scope electrical equipment risk Level 1 or Level 2.
Note: All certificates must be issued in accordance with the equipment safety rules.
