UKCA(UK Conformity Assessed) After the Brexit transition period ends, from January 1, 2021, there is a new safety approvals for switching power supplies and medical adapters/open frames in UK market, when importing to the UK market must comply with the requirements of UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed). UKCA covers most of the current EU CE regulations. The UK market includes England, Wales and Scotland, but excluding Northern Ireland. The UKCA mark is only applicable to the UK which cannot be applied to the European Union, European Economic Area or Northern Ireland market. *UKCA requirements*Under the following conditions, the product shall be with “UKCA” logo from January 1, 2021.• Products sold in the UK• Products within the scope of British law• Must pass a third-party qualification assessment• Those who originally used the UK Notified Body and hasn’t transfer the conformity assessment file to the EU Notified Body before January 1, 2021The above requirements don’t include the existing inventory entered the UK market before January 1, 2021, regardless of whether the verification is carried out by a UK institution. UKCA, but starting from January 1, 2022, all products need to use the UKCA logo. North Ireland products (unrestricted) CE or CE+UKNI *UK Conformity Assessed, UKCA UK Conformity Assessment* • UKCA (British Conformity Assessment) is a new British product conformity mark, used to show that the product complies with relevant British standards and regulatory requirements.• From January 1, 2021, products sold to the UK market (England, Wales and Scotland, but excluding Northern Ireland) must meet relevant UK standards and regulations before they can use the UKCA mark. The testing standards and verification process are basically the same as the current CE requirements.• The UKCA mark is only applicable to the UK and cannot be applied to the European Union, European Economic Area or Northern Ireland market. Astek Power Supplies and Medical Adapter and Open Frames meet with UKCA approvals.

Korea Energy Efficiency System MEPS/E-standby/HECP

In order to popularize and expand energy green and environmentally friendly power supplies, save energy, reduce carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable consumers to purchase energy-efficient power supplies first, South Korea has introduced an energy efficiency certification system since the 1990s. Its control agency is KEMCO (Korea Energy Management Corporation), and the testing agencies mainly include KTL and KTC. The power supply needs to comply with KMEPS regulations. According to the adapter and standard, there are three main categories:
1. Energy efficiency rating system MEPS
The power supply is divided into 1 to 5 levels according to energy efficiency and energy usage. The lower limit of energy efficiency is the obligation system applicable to the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS: Minimum Energy Performance Standard).
The Korean government has introduced a mandatory energy efficiency registration and marking system in 1992, using minimum consumption efficiency standards (MEPS) 1-5 labels to identify adapters. In order to expand the popularization of energy-saving power supplies, the energy consumption rate rating system assumes the following three obligations for domestic manufacturers (domestic) and domestic importers (imports): ① Obligation to affix energy consumption rate rating labels; ② Obligation to declare adapters; ③ Required Meet the minimum consumption rate standards, etc.
2. E-standby with low power consumption system
The South Korean government has also introduced the E-Standby certification system that has been gradually mandatory since 1999.
The standby energy saving warning sign (yellow) shall be affixed to the power supply that does not meet the standard requirements. On the contrary, if it is satisfied, an energy saving sign (smile sign) is added.
3. HECP, a high-efficiency energy equipment system
The Korean government introduced the voluntary High-efficiency Appliance Certification program in 1996, which is a certification system that evaluates the inspection results of energy efficiency and quality tests and requires that they meet certain standards.
