KC certification

Korea KC certification introduction

The Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) announced on August 25, 2008 that the Korean National Standards Commission will implement a new national unified logo, the "KC" logo, from July 2009 to December 2010. The "KC" logo means "Korea Certification". KC certification is a Korean electrical and electronic products safety certification system. It is based on the Korea Electronics Standards Institute (KATS) in accordance with the "Electric Appliance Safety Management Act" The mandatory safety certification system that was implemented on January 1, 2009.

In order to avoid duplicate certification, from July 1, 2012, EMC and Safety are managed separately. For electronic and electrical products that apply for Korean certification, KC certificates and KCC must be obtained for safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. Certificate (new MSIP). There are two KC-certified certification organizations: KTC, Korea Testing Certification, and KTL, Korea Electrical Testing Institute. These two are not only KC certification agencies, but also qualification testing laboratories.

In terms of safety standards, all products entering the Korean market need to comply with the Korean safety standard K standard (similar to the IEC standard). When using the IEC standard, it must meet South Korean requirements. National differences can be found in the announcement of the IECB's CB system. In terms of EMC, the Korean EMI standard is similar to the CISPR standard, and the EMS standard is similar to the EN standard.

Certification classification

Korean KC certification is divided into "KC Safety" and "KC EMC and RF"
(I) KC Safety
The latest "Electrical Appliance Safety Management Law" requires that KC Safety certification be divided into three categories based on the different levels of product hazards:
· Safety Certification
Self-regulatory Safety Confirmation
· Supplier Self-Confirmation (SDoC)

Certificate validity period

1. Compulsory safety certification --- None, the annual audit maintains effectiveness (the following template)
2. Self-disciplined safety confirmation-5 years
3. Supplier self-confirmation ----- no certificate, the confirmation is permanently valid
Factory inspection requirements: mandatory safety certification requires first factory inspection and annual audit
Certificate holder requirements: The mandatory safety certification must be a factory certificate, and the other two types of certification can be held by the factory / manufacturer / importer.

(B) KC EMC and RF
KC EMC and KC RF certifications include electromagnetic compatibility testing, radio frequency and telecommunications testing. According to the latest "Radio Wave Law" requirements, the certification system is divided into three categories according to the level of product's hazardous radio environment:
· Certification of Conformity
Registration of Compatibility
· Interim of Conformity

Applicable product range
The product range of KC certification generally includes electrical products with AC 50 volts and above 1000 volts. In addition to products that must obtain safety certification, they must apply for self-regulatory safety confirmation.

(I). Safety certified electrical appliances (57 headings)
Cables and Cords: 1 headings (wires and cables)
Switches for electrical appliances: 1 headings (electrical switches, electrical switches)

Capacitors & Filters: 1 heading
Electrical equipment parts and connection parts Installation Accessories and Connection Devices: 1 headings
Electrical protection components Installation Protective Equipment: 2 items (mini fuses and fuse clips, circuit breakers)
Household insulation transformers Safety Transformer and Similar Equipment: 2 headings (small household transformers, voltage regulators)
Electrical Appliances for Household and Similar Equipment: 36 heads (vacuum cleaners, electric irons, etc.) Rated output power below 10kW, excluding explosion-proof and medical machinery

Motor Tools: (1 heading)
Audio, Video and Similar Electronic Appliance: 4 headings (power supply, copier, UPS, laminator)
IT and office appliances: 18 items (monitors, printers, projectors, scanners, etc.)

11.Lighting equipment: 4 items
(2) Products subject to self-discipline safety confirmation (95 headings)
Switches for Electrical Appliances: Control Terminals for Electrical
Household insulation transformers Safety Transformer and Similar Equipment: 2 items
Electrical Appliances for Household and Similar Equipment: 35 items Rated output power below 10kW, excluding explosion-proof and medical machinery
Audio and video application equipment: 34 items (television, video player, tuner, etc.)
Information technology and office equipment: 18 headings (monitors, printers, projectors, scanners, etc.)

11.Lighting equipment: 5 items

Application process

1. The client prepares samples and materials to submit to the testing agency
2.The testing organization submits samples and data to KTL / KTC for testing
3. KTL / KTC conducts safety test and issues KC test report after the test is completed
4. (if any) For safety certification, KTL / KTC needs to arrange a factory inspection, and then conduct an annual factory audit every year.
5. KTL / KTC audit report and other application documents, issue KC certificate after no problem

Application materials

1. Relevant application form
Product label
3. Product manual (Korean version)
4. Parts list
5.List of derived models
6.Circuit diagram and layout
7, parts certificate
8. Specifications for transformers and inductors
9.CB certificate and report

Certificate information



Difference between Korean KC certification and KCC certification

KCC is a compulsory certification for IT information, telecommunications and RF radio frequency products in the Korean market, including electromagnetic compatibility testing, telecommunications testing and radio frequency testing. The Korea Radio and Communications Commission authorized the Korea Radio Research Institute (RRA) as the KCC certification authority. Since January 1, 2011, the original Korean KCC logo will be uniformly converted to KC, so the KCC certification and the KC certification use the same certification mark, the difference is that the KCC certification mark will carry a KCC ID number.

KC nameplate requirements
The KC nameplate must include the following:
① KC mark (including certificate number SUxxxxxxxx)
② Product name (must be shown in Korean)
③ Model name
④ Voltage frequency
⑤Factory name
⑥ Manufacturing country
⑦Double insulation sign "back" (if required)
⑧Year of production
⑨A / S after-sales service phone (must be in Korea)
