Equipment certification and registration

This information is about where to go to get an electrical equipment certification, registration, fees and specific requirements for test reports.

The Queensland Electrical Safety Office (ESO) no longer issues certificates. Certificates can be obtained from accredited Recognised External Certification Scheme (RECS), or other Government Regulators who issue certificates. Current ESO issued certificates remain valid until their expiry date is reached.

Certification fees are set by the individual certifier.

For in-scope electrical equipment, you must register as a responsible supplier and also register any level three and level two equipment. You must also provide evidence of compliance to the relevant standard for all equipment.
