C-TickThe C-tick indicates compliance with Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Electromagnetic Emissions (EME) and Radiocommunications requirements of Australia and New Zealand.  Equipment cannot be legally placed on the market or taken into use unless the equipment carries the C-tick.

All radio communications devices, including Short Range Radio (SRD) devices, are subject to C-tick approval.

The C-Tick is a protected symbol and permission must be sought from the Australian Communications Media Authority (ACMA) or from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) in New Zealand before use.  The ACMA and MBIE will only grant permission to use the C-tick compliance mark to manufacturers and importers, or to their authorised agents based in Australia and New Zealand respectively.  Manufacturers based outside Australia and New Zealand will therefore require an in-country partner.

If permission to use the C-tick is granted, the ACMA will issue the applicant with a supplier code prefixed by the letter ‘N’. Alternatively, the MBIE will issue the applicant with a supplier code prefixed by the letter ‘Z’.
