Privacy information for the National Database

Privacy information for suppliers registering on the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) Registration Database (National Database) under the ACMA regulatory arrangements.

On your completion of this website form:

  • the ACMA and the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC) will have access to the information you have provided
  • your company registration information will be publicly available through the public supplier registration search facility on the National Database

The collection of personal information via this website form will be handled by the ACMA in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles which are set out in Schedule 1 to the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act).

The purpose of collection of the information is to ensure suppliers of devices under the ACMA regulatory arrangements are identifiable and contactable. This information is required under the following notices:

The notices require that suppliers of customer equipment, customer cabling and other specified items in Australia ensure that those items meet mandatory technical standards and are appropriately labelled with a compliance label which includes a Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM). Affixing a compliance label illustrates compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. 

If you do not provide the information required for this website form, the RCM is not able to be applied to a device under our regulatory arrangements.

We will use the personal information provided by you via this website form for the purposes outlined above. We will not otherwise use the information for any other purpose, nor will we disclose it, unless we have your consent, or we are otherwise permitted to do so under the Privacy Act.

Further information on the Privacy Act is in the ACMA’s Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy contains details about how you may access personal information about you that is held by us and seek the correction of such information. It also explains how you may complain if you think the ACMA may have breached the Privacy Act and how we will deal with such a complaint.

Should you have any questions in this regard please contact the ACMA’s privacy contact officer by telephone on 1800 226 667 or by email at
