Electrical Safety Approvals

For Australia getting your electrical product approved falls into one of two categories for household and similar products and commercial and industrial products.

Who must comply?

  • Everyone who manufactures or imports the electrical equipment into Australia must comply.

What equipment must comply?

  • Low voltage electrical equipment that is designed, or marketed as suitable, for household, personal or similar use.

  • Commercial and industrial equipment

The electrical safety Acts and Work Health and Safety Acts enacted by each state and territory and the Electrical Safety Installation Regulations of each state and territory apply.  Guidance is given in the codes of practice that support the legislation. 

In general, Australia is a highly regulated environment and suppliers to the Australian market must inform themselves of the applicable legislation and standards or risk fines and product recalls.
