Certificates of Conformity can only be issued for products that need to comply with the National Construction Code (NCC). If you are considering applying for a Certificate of Conformity, you should contact one of the CodeMark Conformity Bodies listed on the JAS-ANZ website. There you can find out what information you need to supply, what fees will be charged, what the process involves and how long the process is likely to take.
The cost of CodeMark certification will depend on a number of factors, including the quality of supporting evidence submitted about the product’s compliance, and the complexity of the evaluation needed. Fees for CodeMark certification is a commercial arrangement between the applicant and the CodeMark Conformity Body.
The information you may need to supply could include:
- a clear scope of use for the product
- the relevant NCC provisions the certification is to cover
- product technical information/specifications
- product test results, and
- any independent assessments or appraisals.
Organisations wanting to become a CodeMark Australia Certification Body should apply directly to the JAS-ANZ. The requirements for accreditation of CodeMark Australia Certification Bodies are set out in the CodeMark Australia Scheme Rules.
