Our products comply with Australian Electrical Safety Laws. Any electric fence energiser that can plug into the 240V mains while operating must be approved and have an Electrical Regulation Authorities Council (ERAC) approval number.
We have seen several imported products that do not comply and are potentially unsafe, and in this case there is a real possibility that 240Vac can end up on the fence live wire resulting in the deaths of animals or people.
How to tell if a product you have is compliant:
New Product Compliance Rules commenced Jan 2014 (ERAC). The appliance must show the RCM mark and the equipment must be registered on ACMA/ERAC’s National Equipment Registration System
You can visit the ERAC website to search for registration certificates from suppliers, brands, and for specific product models.
Electric fence energisers are considered level 3 appliances by the Queensland Government, and must therefore hold a level 3 equipment registration.
