Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM, Regulatory Compliance Mark) is a registered mark, indicating that the supplier declares that the product complies with the safety and other requirements of the electrical safety laws/regulations of the Australian states and New Zealand, and also complies with the Australian Radio Communications Act and Electromagnetic compatibility requirements under the New Zealand Radio Communications Act. The RCM mark can only be used on products that comply with both electrical safety regulations and EMC regulations.
The owner of the RCM mark is the federal government, and both the electrical safety statutory authority and the EMC statutory authority accept the RCM mark as a supplier declaration of conformity. As long as the supplier is approved to use the RCM logo in any state, the statutory management agencies of other states can accept it, thus realizing the approval of each state at one time.
The supplier needs to apply and register before using the RCM logo. Once registered, suppliers may use the RCM mark on all products that meet applicable legal and regulatory requirements. If it is found that the products using the RCM logo do not comply with the legal/regulatory requirements for use, the supplier will impose penalties in accordance with the provisions of the Australian Trademark Law.
Definition of RCM in English
RCM= Safety + EMC + Importer Declaration
1. Safety (product safety certification):
Product safety certification includes two parts: electrical products are divided into regulated electrical (Prescribed Product) and non-regulated product (Non-prescribed product).
1) Controlled electrical products are classified according to AS/NZS4417.2, including electric heating equipment, refrigeration equipment, electric tools, spare parts, etc. Among them, the three issuing units Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria are the most active in the certification process. Regulated electrical appliances must obtain a Certificate of Approval issued by the monitoring department and require identification.
2. EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility)
Australia's electromagnetic compatibility compliance plan is based on the 1992 Radio Communications Act (Radio Communications ACT 1992), which covers a wide range of products, including motor-driven and heat-generating electrical products, power tools and similar products, lamps and similar equipment, TV receivers and audio equipment, information technology products, industrial scientific and medical equipment, ignition engines and arc welding equipment, etc.
2. RCM certification application process
Australian RCM certification process
1. The third-party laboratory evaluates the product and determines the test standards to be implemented;
2. If there are any non-conformities in the test, the laboratory will rectify the product to meet and meet the requirements of Australian standards;
3. Pass the test and issue a test report;
4. Submit the test report to the Australian issuing agency for document review;
5. Australia passed the audit and issued the RCM certificate;
6. Customers can complete the registration of the Australian website by themselves or by the laboratory.
