Introduction to South Korea KC certification
The Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) announced on August 25, 2008 that the Korean National Standards Committee will implement the new national unified mark "KC" mark from July 2009 to December 2010. The "KC" mark means "Korea Certification". KC certification is the Korean electrical and electronic product safety certification system. It is based on the Korean Electronics Standards Institute (KATS) and was implemented on January 1, 2009 in accordance with the "Electrical Appliances Safety Management Act" compulsory safety certification system.

In order to avoid duplication of certifications, EMC and security will be managed separately from July 1, 2012. For electronic and electrical products applying for Korean certification, KC certificates and KCC must be obtained to meet safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. Certificate (new MSIP). There are two certification agencies for KC certification: KTC (Korea Testing and 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 IEC standards, Korean requirements must be met. National differences can be found in the IECB’s CB System Announcement. 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
South Korea's KC certification is divided into "KC safety" and "KC electromagnetic compatibility and radio frequency"
(1) KC Security
The latest "Electrical Appliance Safety Management Law" requires KC safety certification to be divided into three categories according to the degree of hazard of the product:
· safety certificate
Self-discipline safety confirmation
· Supplier Self-Confirmation (SDoC)
Certificate validity period
1. Mandatory safety certification --- None, annual audit remains valid (template below)
2. Self-discipline safety confirmation-5 years
3. Supplier self-confirmation-----no certificate, confirmation is permanently valid
Factory inspection requirements: Mandatory safety certification requires first factory inspection and annual audit
Certificate holder requirements: Mandatory safety certification must be a factory certificate, the other two types of certification can be held by factories/manufacturers/importers.

(B) KC EMC and RF
KC EMC and KC RF certifications include electromagnetic compatibility testing, radio frequency and telecommunications testing. According to the requirements of the latest Radio Wave Law, the certification system is divided into three categories according to the level of hazardous radio environments of products:
· Conformity certification ·
Compatibility registration
· Provisional qualification
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 also apply for self-regulatory safety confirmation.

The difference between Korean KC certification and KCC certification

KCC is a mandatory certification for IT information, telecommunications and RF products in the Korean market, including electromagnetic compatibility testing, telecommunications testing and radio frequency testing. The Korean Radiocommunication Commission authorizes the Korean Radio Research Institute (RRA) as the KCC certification body. Starting from January 1, 2011, the original Korean KCC mark will be uniformly converted to KC. Therefore, KCC certification and KC certification use the same certification mark. The difference is that the KCC certification mark will carry the 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 displayed in Korean)
③ Model name
④ Voltage frequency
⑤ Factory name
⑥ Manufacturing country
⑦ Double insulation mark "back" (if required))
⑧Year of production
⑨A/S after-sales service phone number (must be in South Korea)
