Since July 1997 Australian Communications Authority (ACA) and now the The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has been responsible for administering all telecommunications, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrical safety compliance standards in Australia.
What is EMC?
EMC refers to the ability of an electronic device to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic interference (EMI) to anything in that environment. The EMC framework which is based on international standards, was designed to reduce the emissions from electrical and electronic products and ensure susceptible equipment is designed so it will not be affected by EMI. This applies to equipment designed for the purpose of receiving data from an external source, processing that data and providing that data output.
In order to show the product’s continuous compliance to the appropriate standard, the framework requires a supplier’s declaration of conformity and a self declaration by the Australian supplier responsible for placing the product on the Australian market.
Despite the change in regulations, Interworld Electronics has endeavoured to ensure that all our products are C-Tick compliant.
