What are the A-Tick and C-Tick logos on products? In Australia, the A-Tick and C-Tick logo on a product indicated product compliance. Symbolising a product’s manufacturer was claiming that the product had verified compliance with the Australian requirements. The C-Tick and A-Tick are now officially legacy logo’s these should now only be found on older products. These compliance marks were phased out over a 3 year period. This scheme was brought to an end on the 1st of March, 2016.

Both of these Australian compliance marks are replaced by the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM).

What was the C-Tick logo?

The C-Tick logo indicated compliance with the Electromagnetic Compatibility or EMC requirements. The logo is a registered trademark of the Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA). Any company or organisation that wished to affix the logo had to provide documentation. As evidence that they complied with the EMC compliance requirements. The evidence required is like the evidence required today for the RCM requirements. Including a valid EMC test report, a Declaration of Conformity (DoC), maintain a compliance folder. And label the product with C-Tick logo (after applying to the ACMA to allow the use of the logo).
