Comments regarding the VALIDITY of Certificates
Specific comments on the AUSEx Certificate's expiry date.
'Product manufactured before the expiry date of an AUSEx certificate may not reach market point of sale until after the date of expiry of the certificate. When this occurs, there have been reports of uncertainty on the validity of the certification.
Certificate holders under the AUSEx Scheme have responsibility to ensure that finished product from a manufacturer conforms to the Standard(s) and that the product is identical to the design of the product type tested.
Since the Certificate relates to the product and manufacturing, it logically follows (and is intended by the Scheme) that the Certificate expiry relates to manufacturing and not to events beyond manufacturing.
An AUSEx Certificate is therefore deemed valid for a product as long as there is evidence that manufacturing was completed prior to Certificate expiry.'
Specific comments on the ANZ Ex Certificate Status.
An ANZ Ex Certificate [issued after 2002] will show either current, suspended, withdrawn or cancelled.
Current = the certificate is still in use and the product is being manufacturered.
Suspended = there is an issue with the manufacture of the product that is temporary
Withdrawn = the ANZ Ex CB has withdrawn the Certificate and product is recalled and can no longer be manufactured.
Cancelled = the manufacturer [certificate holder] has notified that the product is no longer being produced.
The MS-067 Management Committee may authorize an extension of the validity date due to circumstances beyond the Certificate Holders control. For example where assessment and testing for re-certification has been delayed. In these circumstances the Certificate Holder is issued a statement advising the new Validity date and the website data record is updated as the official status. The new Validity date is not added to the certificate.
In ALL cases where the certificate is current at the date of installation it is valid for that installation for its life.
