  • QR code, or similar, can be used as an alternative form of compliance label, displaying the Regulatory Compliance Mark (RCM)
  • Machinery amendments have been made to the Telecommunications Labelling Notice, including:
    • Removing references for supplier code numbers, national database manager, revoking standards, and updating the definition of the national database.
    • Changes to reference the Mobile Equipment Standard 2022 (Technical Standard 2022).

3 technical standards have been removed as well from ACMA regulation, standards related to the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) technology and an industry standard which applied to surge protectors:
