Before proceeding to make an application, please first determine the specification suitable for your product or service from our list of Published Specifications.

Our staff are happy to have a discussion with you if you need some help to determine the most suitable specification.

Please see our Fee Schedule for further information on the application and annual licence fees that will be relevant for your licenced products. All assessments are completed at the approved estimated budget plus 5% administration fee.

Before formally applying, we encourage you to phone the office for a quick discussion and to go over any questions or queries you may have. After completing these preliminary steps, it is time to submit an application.
