ERAC Authorised Representative ServicesERAC EESS Authorised Representative, Australian Local Representative
Global Approvals offers ERAC EESS Authorised Representative Services.
Q: Can I sell my Electrical Equipment in Australia if I don’t have a local office?
A: ERAC in-scope equipment cannot be legally sold without a local entity (ABN holder) registering as a Responsible Supplier. The local entity can however appoint an “Authorised Representative” to act on their behalf.
ERAC EESS Authorised Representative
For legal sale of all in-scope electrical and electronic products a local entity (ABN holder) must register as a Responsible Supplier. Overseas entities are not allowed to register as a Responsible Supplier per ERAC rules.
ACMA Agents are also not allowed to register as ERAC Responsible Suppliers.
However, ERAC does allow a Responsible Supplier to appoint an ERAC EESS Authorised Representative who can act on behalf of the Responsible Supplier to make declarations, register products on the ACMA/ERAC database and arrange electrical safety compliance and certification.
An ERAC EESS Authorised Representative service is initiated with a simple, one time contract. Services for each project are charged based on project specific requirements. For new customers with simple devices the initial contract fee may cover the necessary compliance activities.
