C-Tick Testing, RCM Certification, Regulatory Compliance Mark, EMC Compliance Testing for RCM / C-Tick

Compliance with the Australian EMC regulations is mandatory and they apply to almost all electronic products supplied to the Australian market. Application of the RCM / C-Tick mark signifies compliance with appropriate Australian EMC standard. Requirements are currently limited to mains terminal disturbance voltage measurements (RF emissions travelling along the AC power lines), telecommunications terminal disturbance voltage measurements (RF emissions travelling along the telecommunication lines) and radiated RF emission measurements (RF emissions emanating from the device through the air).

The most commonly used Australian EMC standards are:

  • AS/NZS CISPR 11 : EMC requirements for ISM Equipment
  • AS/NZS CISPR 12 : EMC requirements for Spark Ignition Engines
  • AS/NZS CISPR 13 : EMC requirements for Audio Visual and Broadcast Equipment
  • AS/NZS CISPR 14 : EMC requirements for Appliances & Power Tools
  • AS/NZS CISPR 15 : EMC requirements for Lighting Equipment
  • AS/NZS CISPR 22 : EMC requirements for Information Technology Equipment
  • AS/NZS 61000-6-3 : Generic EMC requirements for Residential and Commercial and Light Industrial Environments
  • AS/NZS 61000-6-4 : Generic EMC requirements for Heavy Industrial Environments

Regulatory Compliance Mark – RCM

The three existing compliance marks are being consolidated into a single compliance mark. This will indicate a device’s compliance with all applicable ACMA regulatory arrangements (telecommunications, radio communications, EMC and EME) ; and with applicable electrical equipment safety requirements relevant to each state and territory in Australia.
