2.A-tiok requirements for telecommunications equipment
In accordance with Part 21 of the Australian Telecommunications Act 1997, Qu Australia's Communications and Media Authority Hu Tu is responsible for the technical management of telecommunications consumer devices and consumer connections.

This system was implemented in accordance with the Telecommunications Label Bulletin 2001. The main purpose of compliance requirements is to ensure that such products comply with the relevant technical standards required by regulatory authorities and are properly labeled before being provided or connected to a telecommunications network. Relevant technical standards relate to the health and safety of users and operators of integrated telecommunications networks, the availability of interconnection of telecommunications networks that provide standard telephone services, and the implementation of emergency call services.

Relationship between SAA certification, C-Tick, A-Tick and RCM
SAA certification is for the control of safety regulations, C-Tick certification is for EMC and radio products, and A-Tick certification is for telecommunications products. The RCM mark is a certification mark introduced in 2013. After the product has obtained safety certification and electromagnetic compatibility registration, it can obtain the RCM mark through the safety certification regulatory agency. From March 1, 2016, all electrical and electronic products sold must start using the RCM logo; the A-tick and C-tick logos will be replaced. RCM can be understood as a registration system, including SAA and C-TICK.
