According to the law in Australia, it is the importer who is responsible for ensuring that a product carries the required Australian electrical safety certification. This applies, even if you buy online. The overseas supplier is under no obligation to comply with Australian law. 

Original equipment manufacturers, caravan builders and caravan electricians are advised to ensure that their supplier holds an Australian electrical safety certificate for any MEAN WELL battery charger purchased and can provide the full test report to the regulators if requested.

If you have purchased any MEAN WELL PB series battery charger it should carry the Australian regulatory compliance mark.

If the RCM compliance mark is missing, then you will probably need to have the battery charger tested and certified before you can install it. This will typically cost in excess of $5000.

ADM carries the PB series battery chargers in stock and holds the necessary certifications and associated documentation that is required to legally sell them into Australia.

All MEAN WELL PB series battery chargers supplied by ADM display a valid RCM mark.

Please note that MEAN WELL do not test and certify the PB series battery chargers for use in Australia. If you buy from a supplier other than ADM, the battery chargers may not carry the necessary electrical safety certification and RCM mark.
