All australian standards documents cost money. To either download or buy a
It isn't a big a problem as you would think though, as it only applies to
those who are manufacturing for sale of the equipment anyway.
I don't know if it applies to homemade lights, it probably doesn't.
I'm only aware of C-Tick requirements on equipment. If you're selling a
piece of electronic equipment, it MUST comply and pass the relavant C-Tick
Exceptions are in place for hire equipment, second hand equipment, or
equipment you're giving away for free.
This is the reason for the prevalance of "as new" electronic equipment
available for purchase via eBay in australia.
Some of the equipment will outright fail C-Tick requirements, and due to
their design, will NEVER pass, but can be legally sold anyway, with the words
"as new" appended.
They open the new packets, look at the equipment, and stuff it back in the
box. It's now "officially" second hand, and can be legally sold without C-Tick
approval. Sometimes with the loophole that the equipment may be allowed to
sell, but not to actually _use_.
I've seen and can quote some quite scary examples of why this _shouldn't_ be
allowed, but that's another topic altogether.
