Additional information for the new single compliance mark – RCM.
Timetable for implementation
The changes are currently proposed to start on 1 July 2012 to align with the proposed commencement date for the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC) Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) (see below). This date may be postponed if there is a delay in the commencement of the EESS.
The current arrangements apply until the commencement date.
From 1 July 2012, the new arrangements will only apply to new suppliers—those not registered on the ACMA supplier database.
From 1 July 2015, the arrangements will apply to all suppliers.
