National Database

The Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) incorporates a National Database that is the gateway for in-scope electrical equipment registration in Australia and New Zealand.

The database records the registration details of Responsible Suppliers of electrical equipment in Australia and New Zealand. Responsible Suppliers are required to register their details on the database.

As part of the registration process, Responsible Suppliers also make a declaration that the equipment they sell meets relevant standards and is electrically safe.

Responsible Suppliers are required to register all types of Level 2 and Level 3 equipment they sell on the database.

The database also records the certification details of Level 3 electrical equipment. A valid Certificate of Conformity is required before the product can be registered by a Responsible Suppler.

Compliance Folders for Level 2 equipment can be uploaded onto the database, if the compliance folder itself is not uploaded then at least the physical location of the folder must be entered onto the database and be made available within 10 days upon request by a Regulator.

Responsible Supplier Declarations or Equipment Declarations are also recorded on the database.
