C Tick the same as CE?
C Tick Approval
The technical assessment and justification along with the applicable standards
are either equivalent or identical for Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC) when it comes to C Tick marking and CE marking. The Australian technical requirements for C Tick are a subset of the CE
requirements for EMC, with CE including additional requirements for immunity. Also CE is much more extensive than C Tick as it
covers a broad range of product safety with application from toys to
watercraft. And although C Tick covers radio
transmitters and EMR, in the case of EMC the test reports used for CE may be
used for C Tick.
The set of standards mandated by the Australian Communication and Media Authority
for EMC include European Standards (these commence with an EN). Some
care must be taken to ensure that the EN standard applied is applicable to the
product that a supplier is placing on the Australian market and that all
applicable clauses of current version of the standard have been applied. Note
that “applicable” is the key word as older standards may still be applicable as
the changes that led up to the current version of the standard are not relevant
to the product being supplied.
Variants and families of products, as well some special cases such a battery
operated devices, need technical assessment and justification to show that they
are compliant. This can be achieved by an analysis of the
"critical components" and the design with the aim of finding the most
representative configurations as well as identifying those components that are
benign or low risk from and EMC perspective.
Once the technical file is completed all that remains is to fill out the
Declaration of Conformity form that is available from the ACMA's website and
place the C Tick mark on the product. To obtain the C Tick just fill out the
application on the ACMA's website and they will register you on their database
and issue you with a supplier code number.
Just a reminder that only Australian companies can apply for C Tick and that
agency agreements can only be made between Australian companies such as the
importer and the Australian agent. An agency agreement between an
Australian agent and a non-Australian company is meaningless.
