 KC (Korean Certification)

KC (Korea Certification) certification, formerly known as EK certification, is the Korean electrical and electronic appliance safety certification system. KC approval was established by the Korea Institute of Technology and Standards (KATS) in 2009 according to the "ELECTRIC APPLIANCES SAFETY CONTROL ACT".

 

In order to avoid double certification, EMC and Safety will be managed separately from July 1, 2012. For safety approval for electrical and electronic products, they must obtain KC certificates. If electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), they process for KCC certificate (new MSIP). There are 2 KC-certified qualification agencies, Korea Testing Certification (KTC) and Korea Electrical Testing Institute (KTL). They are not only KC's certification agencies, but also qualification testing laboratories.

In terms of safety standards, before all products importing to Korean market, they need to comply with the Korean K safety standard (similar to the IEC standard). It must meet the requirements of South Korea on IEC standards. National differences can be discover in the announcement in the IECEE 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.

 

According to the requirements of the latest "Electrical Appliances Safety Management Law", and according to the different levels of product hazards, KC certification is divided into compulsory safety certification, self-discipline safety certification and supplier self-confirmation. Among them, compulsory safety certification controls products that are more dangerous High, the supplier self-confirms that the product under control is less dangerous.
