Electrical Safety and Compliance
How can you tell if an Ionic Detox Foot Bath System for sale in Australia is safe?
Check for Australian Electrical Safety Approval Logo's. All three provided below should be present on any Detox Foot Bath System for sale
Several companies claim to have CE, EMC, FDD, EMC, CC, and UL approvals. Ask these manufacturers for copies of their certifications and or copies of their safety reports - see what they say.
Overseas Certificates of Approval and approval marks, such as the CE mark, are not acceptable in Australia and are NOT recognised by the Australian Department of Fair Trading as a relevant standard for Electrical Safety for supply of Ionic Detox Foot Bath Systems within Australia. Ask any Australian Company selling a Detox Foot Spa/Ion Cleanse/Ionic Detox Foot Bath System what their compliance and C-tick Certifications are.
BEWARE of anyone selling a system on Ebay or outwith Australia they will most certainly NOT have any Australian Electrical Safety Certifications and they could be a potential electrical safety hazzard.
If you are a practitioner, you must be concerned about liability. Insurance companies may not cover damages from units out of regulatory compliance. As an individual user, you need to be concerned about the physical safety for you and your family.

Electrical Safety Compliance & RCM
Power cords and AC adaptors for use in Australia must be tested for compliance with state electrical safety authority regulations. The New South Wales state government department responsible for electrical safety is The Department of Fair Trading (DOFT). Other States and Territories also have a department responsible for issuing Electrical Safety Certificates. A safety certificate issued in any State or Territory is recognised Australia wide. The product must be marked with a valid Electrical Safety Certificate Number e.g. NSW13816 (or N13816) or a RCM number issued by Standards Australia (SAA) e.g. N5071. C-Tick markings may also appear on an AC adaptor and show compliance with EMC standards. The RCM (Regulatory Compliance Mark) may be used as an alternative to show compliance with Electrical Safety and EMC standards. Our RCM (SAA) number is N5071.
Electrical Safety Compliance
By interstate agreement and legislation, an electrical safety certificate issued by the appropriate regulatory authority in any State or Territory is recognised by all other States or Territories.
Articles approved by a regulatory authority must be identified with a valid Electrical Safety Certificate Number issued by a State or Territory authority. An electrical safety certificate number typically consists of a letter to indicate the State of approval, followed by a number.
