EMC Bayswater – Certificates, scope of accreditation and site registrations

EMC Bayswater Pty Ltd is a National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) accredited ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 testing laboratory. ISO 17025 is the baseline quality standard for laboratories.

EMC Bayswater is one of the NATA accredited laboratories to various basic product specific EMC emissions and immunity testing standards. We remain committed to ongoing scope expansion of our existing EMC accreditation testing scope.

 

NATA is Australia’s internationally recognised national authority for providing independent assurance of technical competence. NATA was established in 1947 and was the world’s first comprehensive laboratory accreditation body and remains one of the largest.

In Australia the Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA) only accept NATA endorsed EMC test reports in cases of dispute. If you require EMC testing for Australia NATA reports are the best option.

EMC Bayswater Pty Ltd current scope of NATA Accredited EMC Testing and NATA Certificate

Using an accredited testing facility is the safest way of proving compliance. NATA reports are accepted by the ACMA and most overseas regulators as demonstrating compliance.

NATA is a founding member of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) which promotes the acceptance of test and calibration data around the world.

ILAC and NATA have established mutual recognition agreements (MRA) with many different accreditation agencies for varying countries. Our NATA endorsed reports are acceptable in all European countries and most other countries around the world.

NATA MRA partners include the USA, Japan, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Korea and all European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

 

NATA is synonymous with testing excellence. NATA test reports are accepted worldwide.

Our NATA accreditation status and scope can be found online at the NATA website.

 

Federal communications commission – FCC Compliance for North America and associated regions

EMC Bayswater Pty Ltd is an accredited Federal Communications Commission (FCC) test facility recognized by NATA and the FCC under the mutual recognition agreement with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

FCC testing presently requires testing to be performed on a compliant test site as per ANSI C63.4: 2014. These test site requirements are similar to the previous FCC requirements as per the old FCC (2.948) registered test site database but with some changes. Some testing requires the laboratory to be an accredited laboratory, such as transmitter testing (intentional radiators).

 

We are fully accredited to perform FCC Part 15B (non-intentional radiators) testing subject to Declaration of Conformity (DOC) and certification under Part 15 of the Commission’s Rules and we are accredited for ANSI C63.4: 2014.

 

We are currently waiting for confirmation of our FCC Part 15C intentional radiator accreditation.

 

Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) previously Industry Canada (IC) Compliance for Canada

EMC Bayswater has an Industry Canada IC registered test site, please see the PDF document for further details by clicking on the image to the left.

 

The Bureau (Industry Canada, now known as Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED)) found that the submitted test site validation and measurement facility for our  3m alternative test site for performing Radiated and Conducted compliance measurements for Canada were satisfactory.
