JAS-ANZ as an approving body

On 27 February 2017, the ACMA made the Telecommunications (Approving Body) Determination 2017 (the Determination) specifying the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) as an approving body for the purposes of section 410 of the Telecommunications Act 1997 (the Act).

As an approving body, JAS-ANZ has the responsibility for determining a specified person or association is a certification body for the purposes of Division 7 of Part 21 of the Act (relating to the compliance and labelling of customer equipment and customer cabling).

The Determination is supplemented by the Telecommunications Equipment Certification Scheme (the TECS) which sets out the requirements for the assessment of applications for a determination as a certification body. The TECS also contains requirements in relation to the operation of certification bodies.
