Argentina IRAM Certification

Introduction to IRAM certification in Argentina

In order to ensure the safe use of electrical appliances by the public, Argentina requires that electrical products sold on the market must meet the corresponding regulatory requirements. Argentina issued a resolution on February 16, 1998, and began to establish a compulsory certification system to ensure that electrical products sold on the Argentine market meet the minimum safety requirements. The implementation of the system is divided into three phases:
The first stage
Certificate of Conformity This stage of certification is similar to European CE certification. All electrical products entering the Argentine market need a certificate of compliance, which is what we usually call a CE certificate.
second stage
Type Approval products need to obtain a type approval certificate issued by the IRAM after testing in an accredited laboratory. The type approval only needs to be tested for safety, no factory inspection is required, but no safety certification mark can be used on the product.
The third stage
Product Certification At this stage, all products sold on the Argentina market must obtain the national certification mark. Certified products can use the "S" mark. Argentina's certification is transitioning to the third stage, the product certification stage, and type approval certificates are still acceptable in Argentina. However, from 2001 to 2002, the product will gradually complete the transition to the certification phase.

Safety requirements

Agreement 197/2004 provides for S-Mark enforcement on electrical and electronic products, toys, personal protective equipment, elevators, lighters, children's bicycles, and construction steel equipment with an input voltage in the range of 50-1000 VAC AC or 50-1500 VDC DC. Certified. The agreement requires that the product must comply with IRAM or IEC standards. The IRAM standard is mainly based on international standards (IEC and ISO). Manufacturers can attach the Argentina S mark to products that meet the standards. Product evaluation is performed according to IEC standards plus Argentine differences or Argentine standards. In fact, the formulation of the IRAM standard has adopted most of the provisions of the IEC standard.
Resolution 92/98 has been implemented in several stages. Since December 1, 2003, mandatory safety requirements have been gradually set for different types of products.
