The Equipment Safety Rules
The Equipment Safety Rules (“the Rules”) outline the safety requirements for participants of the EESS, including Responsible Suppliers and certifiers. This is to achieve consistency in the areas of certification decision making, determining standards, what information is uploaded to the EESS Registration Database, and more. Consistency of the Rules is one of the main aims of the EESS. The Rules also provide guidance on interpretation of the registration requirements and definitions.
The final document forms part of the model legislation. Participation in the EESS requires compliance with the Rules.
The Rules are regularly reviewed by the Standing Committee of Officials, in consultation with stakeholders and updated as required.
