Electrical safety certification for power supplies and battery chargers – EESS updated Information Bulletin V2.0 related to the certification requirements and correct standards.
The EESS regulator has finally released their updated Information Bulletin V2.0 related to the certification requirements and correct standards needed for AC Adaptors, power supplies and battery chargers supplied to the Australian market.
The latest Information Bulletin lists general certification requirements that cover all types of power supplies and battery chargers as well as additional specific requirements and standards that apply to either power supplies or battery chargers. The full text of the Information Bulletin is available here.
What remains unchanged is that AC Adaptors, power supplies and battery chargers supplied for household or personal use are classified as Risk Level 3 that require mandatory safety certification and Level 3 equipment registration on the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) database. They also need to be marked with the approval number, for example ABC-XXXXXX-EA as required in NSW in addition to the RCM marking.
Requirements for EMC compliance under Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA) regulations and energy efficiency testing and registration under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) rules also apply.
