BSMI Updates Technical Specification for Verification and Inspection of Equipment for Electric Vehicles

18. August 2022

In February 2022 BSMI in Taiwan updated the technical specification for the verification and inspection of electrical vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).

This technical specification applies to electric vehicle (EV) supply equipment, which includes, but is not limited to, equipment for charging electric vehicles with a specified nominal supply voltage and a specified nominal output voltage, which must be subject to testing and inspection.



As a rule, a transition period is always granted by the Taiwanese authorities until the technical specifications or regulations then come into force. In this case the update will be implemented from January 2023 and will apply to both Taiwanese manufactured and imported EVSE.

The technical specification has been formulated with reference to the following international regulations and technical specifications:


No. Standard Titel
1 IEC 62052-11:2020 Electricity metering equipment – General requirements, tests and test conditions – Part 11: Metering equipment
2 IEC 62053-21:2016 Electricity metering equipment (AC) – Particular requirements – Part 21: Static meters for active energy (classes 1 and 2)
3 IEC 62053-41:2020 Electricity metering equipment – Particular requirements – Part 41: Static meters for DC energy (classes 0,5 and 1)
4 National Institute of Standards and Technology Handbook 44, §3.40, 2019
5 PTB-A 50.7 Requirements for electronic and software

Depending on the product there are various certification requirements in Taiwan for which different authorities are responsible. In the automotive sector, the VSCC is primarily responsible, but also BSMI. The relevant authorities or certifications must be checked with the authorities. In some cases, only one certification is sufficient to be able to market the product in Taiwan.

If you are unsure whether your product needs to obtain BSMI certification or VSCC certification, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to assist you in determining which certification requirements apply to you.
