The Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM) is a trade mark owned by the electrical regulator (Regulatory Authorities (RAs)) and Australian Communications Media Authority (ACMA).
The Australian Standard AS/NZS 4417.1 and AS/NZS 4417.2 Marking of electrical products to indicate compliance with regulations – General rules for use of the mark provides general requirements for the use of the RCM including location of the marking on the equipment and its dimensional requirements.
The RCM is a symbol that represents compliance with two independent schemes:
- EESS; and
- ACMA’s labelling requirements.
For electrical safety, in-scope electrical equipment must not be sold unless the item is marked with the RCM in compliance with AS/NZS 4417.1 & 2 and the EESS.
The move to one single mark helps reduce red tape for industry and save costs. One mark to represent compliance to both schemes, and the removal of the need to track and mark equipment with unique approval/certificate numbers saves time and money. The symbol will also be easier to recognise by consumers.
