Certification Introduction

 

South Korea's mandatory electrical product safety certification system (EK certification) began in 1974, and its purpose is to prevent electrical appliances from hazards such as fire, electric shock and malfunction. The model of EK certification was originally the "Type Approval System", which is a certification system in which the government issues a type approval certificate to the product and supervises the market according to the certification application and the test report issued by the authorized laboratory. In 1997, the Korean government promulgated "The Electric Appliance Safety Control Act", and the type approval directly carried out by the government was changed to be implemented by an authorized certification body. On September 7, 1999, South Korea promulgated Act 6019, which revised the Electric Appliance Safety Control Act, and came into effect on July 1, 2000. The newly revised regulations have made improvements in strengthening the safety control of production and use of electrical appliances, and the safety standards used are harmonized with EC international standards, thereby promoting the implementation of the mutual recognition agreement for conformity assessment.

 

Under the new law, the EK mark is managed by the Bureau of Technology and Standards (KATS) of the Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE, the former Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy MOCIE), and from the date of implementation, authorized the Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL) and the Korea Electronics Testing Institute (KET) is a national certification body. The main differences between the new Act and the old Act are as follows:Korea EK Certification South Korea's mandatory electrical product safety certification system 0

In October 2005, the regulations revised the certification system in the following five aspects:

• For electrical equipment that has not been certified or supervised, the certification body has the right to request the provincial government or mayor to dispose of the product or withdraw it from the market;

• Products that have adopted the standard for regular surveillance for two consecutive years and have passed the inspection results in the market can be exempted from surveillance in the next year;

• 15 categories of products such as food waste disposer and half-height mini bathtub are included in the product range of EK safety certification (enforced from March 1, 2007);

• Safety supervision of used electrical equipment must be carried out in accordance with regulations;

• Provisions for revocation and improvement orders for security certification.
