SGS EPCS Change in Approval Numbers for 2013
Please be advised that due to a change in government policy, the NSW Office of Fair Trading Electrical Safety Regulator will require our Approval Numbering format to change as of the 1st of January 2013.
The previous required marking on SGS-EPCS certified articles presently takes the format of either SGSEA/xxxxxx or SGSE/xxxxxx (where the x’s represent a 6 digit number).
As of the 1st of January 2013, our required marking system will take the format of either SGS-xxxxxx-EA or SGS-xxxxxx-E (where the x’s represent a 6 digit number).
We have been advised that at this stage no other changes to our system will take place
Please note that Certificates issued prior to 1st of January 2013 may still be marked with the old number system as per the required marking shown on the issued certificate.
