Regulatory Changes

New South Wales Fair Trading have formally notified all 3rd party certification bodies operating under the NSW REAS requirements of their intention to require a product approval marking on certified equipment.  We anticipate that this will be implemented before the end of November and possibly as early as November 13th.

Note: we understand that this will only be applicable to new products to market and that existing certified product may continue to be marked with the RCM only if this was permitted by the electrical safety certificate.

New Zealand have issued an advisory notice requiring that RCDs offered for sale in New Zealand must be appropriate for New Zealand conditions (i.e. the voltage rating must include 230 V or 400 V and other NZ only national differences in the product standard must be addressed).   Existing stock of RCDs that are already in New Zealand and are marked 240 V / 415 V only (but are compliant when tested at 230 V  including any other NZ only national differences) can continue to be sold until existing NZ stock has been cleared.  Any RCDs imported after 31st December 2020 must include 230 V or 400 V marking.
