AS/NZS 60335.1 Update - Amendment 2 Requirements

We have had quite a few applications of late where assessment to the full text of Amendment 2 of AS/NZS 60335.1:2011 has not been provided. Amendment 2 is predominately an adoption with very minor national deviations of Amendment 1 of IEC 60335.1:2010 and from 28th November 2016 has been required for certification of most household electrical appliances under both the EESS (RECS) and NSW (REAS) schemes.

The full amendment contains changes to clauses 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29 in addition to figures and annexes. The amendment is quite extensive and some of the clauses updated concern test methods used by the laboratory.
We have received several test reports stating a product complies with Amendment 2 of AS/NZS 60335.1:2011 which have covered only the local deviations of the amendment. This could be due in part to how Australian/New Zealand standards are published both with and without the IEC text; it should be noted that the complete Amendment 2 is 25 pages long, not 4 pages.

In light of this, the following information may be useful for your applications:
• For new testing please request the laboratory to cover IEC 60335.1:2010 including A1:2013 (otherwise known as edition 5.1), with AS/NZS deviations.
• If a pre-existing report is being updated, the full text of Amendment 2 must be covered, not just the AS/NZS deviations.
• Test reports to IEC 60335.1:2010 without Amendment 1 can no longer be used in AustralShows that the corretc report will have IEC 60335-1 Edition 5 with Amendment 1ia/New Zealand.

Certificate of Suitability

The Value of Obtaining a Certificate of Suitability

Most suppliers to the Australian market understand that they must obtain a Certificate of Approval or Conformity before selling products listed as declared articles under the NSW Gazette or as Level 3 products under AS/NZS 4417.2. Whilst not mandatory, for Non-Declared articles, it is highly advantageous to obtain a Certificate of Suitability as it provides an independent assessment of a product’s compliance to the applicable product standard/s.
All electrical appliances and equipment sold in Australia and New Zealand must meet the requirements of the relevant safety standard/s or those of AS/NZS 3820, even if a certificate is not required. Responsible Suppliers listed on the EESS make a declaration under law to this effect when registering as such. If a certificate is not obtained for such products, the supplier may find afterwards that the supporting documents (test reports) are deficient. Unfortunately this may only be realised when a product is involved in an incident or during a compliance audit by a regulator. In such instances the supplier may face significant fines and other penalties for selling non-compliant products in addition to the risk and cost of a product recall.
Obtaining a Certificate of Suitability from CCS before selling Level 1 and 2 electrical products into Australia and New Zealand is one of the best ways to confirm compliance before sale and to reduce risk. Our JAS-ANZ accredited certificates are recognised by electrical regulators as confirmation of compliance for such products.
CCS can provide both Certificates of Suitability or Approval, for further information please call Elaine on 1300 654 356 or click here to apply for a certificate now.
