A Compliance Folder contains evidence (including test reports) in English, confirming that the equipment meets the relevant standard. This evidence must be assessed by an independent testing entity or a suitably qualified person. The Equipment Safety Rules outline the requirements of evidence that a Compliance Folder must contain.
The Responsible Supplier can keep hard or soft copies of the Compliance Folder and must be able to access it if required within 10 business days. The Compliance Folder must be retained for five years after the term of registration for the equipment ends and must be kept current for the period the equipment is supplied by the registered Responsible Supplier.
A Compliance Folder is the required evidence of compliance with relevant standards for Level 2 equipment. However, they can and should be used for Levels 1 & 3 equipment.
