  3. The mark that applies to mobile telephones is the A-tick (C-tick for the
    charger only). For mobile telephones this mark covers the following
    regulatory frameworks (the links point to information):

    For the battery charger:

    For the GSM or CDMA air interface
    http://internet.aca.gov.au/acainterwr/aca_home/publications/reports/industry/telecommbook.pdf

    For the human health effects of electromagnetic radiation:

    The phone must also meet the disability standard - the marking regulations
    do not refer to this hidden, but nonetheless mandatory requirement. In
    short, for a CMT you need a 0.4 mm raised pip on or near the digit 5.

    Additionally the battery charger must also be approved by one of the state
    electrical regulators and marked with the approval number or RCM mark (Qld
    given in the example below)

    thanks, was told by ACCC & consumer affair that a-tick & c-tick is not
    required by law.

  5. That's probably correct, under the "laws" they administer the A-tick and C-tick
    probably aren't required.
