SA Product Register
Make Your Site Compliant
It is up to the business to rate each product and apply the appropriate star rating. Each product is rated by what part of the supply chain is conducted within South Australia, as per the description below:
Supply Chain Descriptors
SA Manufacture means the holistic manufacture or fabrication of finished goods is undertaken in South Australia. The supply, distribution and installation of the product all occur within South Australia.
SA Assembly means that separate component parts of the end product are put together in South Australia. The supply, distribution and installation of the product all occur within South Australia.
Supply or Distribution means the product is manufactured or assembled outside of South Australia but the supply, distribution and installation of the product all occur within South Australia.
Installation means the product is installed within South Australia but the manufacture, assembly, supply or distribution all occur outside South Australia.
If a website is not kept up-to-date with appropriate ratings or if a product is not rated correctly, the Office of the Industry Advocate may determine the business is not complying.
The Office of the Industry Advocate can then determine whether or not there is a valid reason for the non-compliance. If there is not a valid reason, it may decide that a breach has occurred and impose remedies which may include disconnection from the SA Product Register and removal of logos from the offending website. It is important to note the SA Product Register has been established for the Building and Civil Construction industry, however, it will be further developed to incorporate other industries in the future.
Products will then be rated as per the below example:
4 Stars: SA Manufacture, SA Assembly, SA Supply or Distribution and SA Installation
3 Stars: SA Assembly, SA Supply or Distribution and SA Installation
2 Stars: SA Supply or Distribution and SA Installation
1 Star: SA Installation
Once the product has been rated, the star rating can be applied as per the following examples:
