What's new for suppliers


What's new

  • The ACMA has developed an online calculator to assist suppliers in determining whether certain low-power radiocommunications transmitters are subject to the exemptions specified in section 5.4 of Schedule 5 of the Radiation Protection Standard for Maximum Exposure Levels to Radiofrequency Fields - 3 kHz to 300 GHz (2002) (the ARPANSA Standard).
  • Following consultation, the ACMA has made the Telecommunications (Approving Body) Determination 2017 to specify the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) as an approving body for the purposes of section 410 of the Telecommunications Act 1997. An approving body may determine that a specified person or association is a certification body for the purposes of Division 7 of Part 21 of the Act (relating to the labelling of customer equipment and customer cabling).

  • The ACMA has updated the EMC standards to reflect the changes made to the Official Journal of the European Union.

  • The ACMA has amended the EMC arrangements to adopt the European EMC standard EN50561-1 as an applicable standard for the supply of in-home PLT devices.
