Compliance marks

What is the RCM mark?

The RCM mark is the compliance mark for products with levels of conformity 1, 2 and 3. This includes some radio transmitting products (see the Radiocommunications (Radio Standards) Notice).

See the Radiocommunications (Radio Standards) Notice.

 

What is the R-NZ mark?

The R-NZ mark is the compliance mark for radio transmitting products with levels of conformity A1, A2 and A3 (see the Radiocommunications (Radio Standards) Notice).

As there may be different radio frequency allocations in New Zealand and Australia the New Zealand radio label, R-NZ, indicates compliance to New Zealand standards only.

See the Radiocommunications (Radio Standards) Notice.

 

What is the purpose of labelling?

Labelling is a fundamental element of the current Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) technical regulation regime, indicating compliance with applicable RSM technical standards and requires associated record-keeping (including evidence of testing) arrangements. A compliance label provides retailers and consumers with an indication that a device is suitable for market placement.

The use of regulatory compliance labels is only one aspect of the broader compliance regime. By imposing requirements at the point of supply, labelling requirements are intended to limit the supply of non-compliant devices to the market.

 

How will RSM requirements for the RCM and R-NZ be specified?

RSM’s requirements for the RCM and R-NZ are specified in the Radiocommunications (Compliance) Notice.

See the Radiocommunications (Compliance) Notice.

 

What will happen to the C-Tick?

The Compliance Notice has been amended to allow the use of the C-Tick on devices labelled before or during the transition period only. For further details, see Transition period of these FAQs.
