What is the C-Tick Mark?
To deal with the problem of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), the Australian Federal Government introduced the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) framework to protect Australia’s radiofrequency spectrum by introducing technical limits for radio frequency emissions from electrical/electronic products under the Radiocommunications Act.
Suppliers (manufacturers and importers) of these products must demonstrate compliance with the standards as set out in the applicable notice of the Australian Communication and Media Authority, prepare a compliance folder, sign a Declaration of Conformity and apply the C Tick mark to their products.
The applicable standards may be AS/NZS, EN, IEC or CISPR standards. EMCSI can review the EMC reports you may have (such as CE reports), undertake any additional assessment including testing and prepare the compliance folder and Declaration of Conformity.
The applicability of the C Tick mark was expanded to include certain classes of radio transmitters. In these cases the applicable AS/NZS standards address the allowed limits of transmitters including frequency of operation, power and human exposure to EM fields.
