Regulations and Standards apply to all electrical household appliances that are sold in Australia and New Zealand. Level 3 appliances (prescribed or declared articles) must be approved by a state regulator or certification body.  We have many years of experience with domestic cooking appliances, kitchen appliances, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, rangehoods, space heaters, etc.


We are well versed in providing all the documentation required by the regulatory/certification  bodies and liaising with the test laboratories. Our unique blend of skills and experience allows us to offer a wide range of services to suit individual client needs and to help overcome any product non-compliances that arise during testing.

Once your appliance is approved, Design Reality will register it on the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) database and take care of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) compliance requirements to ensure you are fully compliant.

We can act on your behalf to ensure that your approval is efficient and timely. Design Reality can be your single point of contact to liaise with the regulator, testing laboratory, local agents, and other regulatory authorities or we can simply provide the specific service you need to complement your own efforts.


For Australian manufacturers wishing to export we can provide a local, efficient and accessible interface with overseas approval bodies and laboratories through established links, taking advantage of mutual recognition agreements.
