The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA)  is an Australian authority responsible for telecommunications.  Based on the ACMA requirements, an ACMA certification can be obtained to be able to market products in Australia.

Part of the ACMA requirements is / has been the usage of the ACMA certification label.


The ACMA now has issued a change in the display requirements for the certification label.

Suppliers can now use a QR code, or comparable links, as an alternative form of compliance label. This means that suppliers can label equipment using a QR code if the relevant link is to information on a website that prominently displays the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM). The goal is to provide consistency as well as the flexibility for suppliers to comply with labelling requirements through the use of modern technology.

The amendment also repeals three technical standards related to:

  • Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) technology
    • Telecommunications Technical Standard
      (Requirements for ISDN Basic Access Interface – AS/ACIF S031) 2015
    • Telecommunications Technical Standard
      (Requirements for ISDN Primary Rate Access Interface – AS/ACIF S038) 2015
  • Surge Protectors
    • Telecommunications Technical Standard (Surge Protective Devices for Telecommunication Applications – AS/NZS 4117) 2015.
