GS scheme reports not acceptable for component or product approval
There are a number of product and component approval schemes operated throughout the world. For companies seeking Australian approval, GS scheme is not an acceptable scheme or accreditation body as per Appendix A of AS/NZS 3820.
Accepted reports are from:
A laboratory accredited by one of the following:
(i) National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) or International Accreditation
New Zealand (IANZ) or a body with which NATA or IANZ has a mutual recognition
agreement, including A2LA;

of testing (CB Scheme) administered by the IEC system for conformity testing to
Standards for safety of electrical equipment (the IECEE).
