New Certification Scheme in Australia, New Zealand

As you may be aware the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has made a determination specifying the joint accreditation system of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) as an approving body for the purposes of the Telecommunications Act 1997

What this means is that the current certification bodies accreditation system managed by the ACMA under the Act will cease as of the 31st of December 2017 and will be replaced by the new Telecommunication Equipment Certification scheme (TECS) managed by JAS-ANZ. Further information regarding the scheme changes can be found at:

The new scheme requires that certified bodies issuing Certified Body Statements are accredited by JAS-ANZ to AS/NZS ISO IEC 17065.

We see merit in this determination by way of ensuring that the only bodies issuing Certified Body Statements are doing so to a high and consistent standard which is being delivered in adherence to AS/NZS ISO IEC 17065.

 As a result and to comply with impartiality, CSIAs partner in Australia has established a new subsidiary  who has undergone assessment for accreditation by JAS-ANZ to AS/NZS ISO IEC 17065.

Contact CSIA for a list of these new applicable standards.
