The ACMA have recently consolidated the three existing compliance marks (C-Tick, A-Tick and RCM) into a single compliance mark – the RCM. This will indicate a device’s compliance with all applicable ACMA technical standards—that is, for telecommunications, radiocommunications, EMC and EME – and associated record-keeping (including testing) arrangements.

These new RCM labelling arrangements commenced on March 1st 2013. These new arrangements only apply to first-time suppliers – those who do not have a supplier code number (SCN) issued by the ACMA prior to 1 March 2013, with existing suppliers being given a three year phase in period.

A new database recording the details of the products will be launched, and the supplier identification requirements will be removed from labelling notices.
