ERAC has created a central portal for identifying all certificates of electrical equipment issued under electrical safety laws in Australia.
To verify your product has a valid certificate, click here for the public search.
ERACs intention is for this database to list all certificates issued by electrical safety regulators in Australia and New Zealand as well as certificates issued by private certification bodies that operate in accordance with the Equipment Safety Rules.
This database has an associated on-line application facility. This online process has been adopted by Energy Safe Victoria, Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office and Workplace Standards Tasmania. The next regulator scheduled to join the system is South Australia’s Office of the Technical Regulator.
People wishing to make applications for Certificates of Conformity to these certifiers may do so by logging into the database via the login facility (left of screen) and selecting the certifier of their choice during the application process (Workplace Standards Tasmania only accept applications of companies located in Tasmania).
Not all regulators and private certification body certificates are currently listed on this database; ERAC have made access to the database, to upload certificate details, available to certifiers who that have signed the ‘deed of access’.
Certificates added to this database can be used to register level 3 equipment to meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS). The EESS has been, or is being, adopted by all States and Territories of Australia, with the exception of New South Wales.
