Certification and Third Party Certification is the requirement to examine and assess equipment against legislated standards. Although you are not required to report certification of equipment to an authority, you may require proof of compliance with Australian Standards on investigation of an incident. If this happens, you will need documentation that shows the machinery has been certified by a competent, appropriately qualified person. If you don’t know whether an item should be certified, call us on +61 2 4298 8888 or fill in our enquiry form to discuss any uncertainties or requirements specific to relevant governing body, industry and equipment.
In the case of imported designs or equipment, it’s important to note that in general, the Australian Work Health and Safety Act doesn’t accept foreign standards. Even if the imported equipment has a CE Mark, it must be certified and/or registered under Australian Standards.
