Manufacturers and Importers

  • Print

Under the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS), an importer or on-shore manufacturer of electrical equipment who wants to distribute their in-scope electrical equipment must have:

  • An Australian Business Number (ABN) and register as a responsible supplier or,
  • A New Zealand Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number and register as a responsible supplier.

Alternatively they must either:

  • Become a legal entity within Australia or New Zealand and then register as a Responsible Supplier on the National Database or,
  • Distribute their product via an Australian or New Zealand legal entity (who will import the product) that has been registered as a Responsible Supplier on the National Database
