KC Certification for Electronic Products

Electronic products to be sold in South Korea are required to have a KC (Korea Certification Mark) Certification. An accreditation is needed for products with more than 30V (AC) or 42V (DC). Most electronic devices that use the Korean voltage of 220V AC, require a certification. A distinction is made between the three different certification types:

Type 1: KC Safety Certification

    • Product categories which could to pose a potential danger for users
    • Products will need to be tested at an approved South Korean test lab
    • The KC certificate is valid for 1 year
    • Factory inspection and market surveillance are required
    • Some product examples for Type 1 include: electric wires, cords, capacitors, switches for electrical appliances, filters, motorized electric tools, fuse holder, switches, insulated transformers, lightning appliances

Type 2: KC Safety Check

    • Product categories which are less dangerous for users, e.g. AV and ITE equipment
    • Products of this type do not have to be tested in Korea, but do need a certification and registration under KATS
    • The KC Certificate is valid for 5 years
    • No factory inspection and market surveillance is required
    • Some product examples for Type 2 include: electric switches, electric appliances, information technology equipment, audio and video devices

Type 3: KC Supplier Conformity Check

    • Product categories which are seen as not dangerous for users (e.g. appliances with less than 50V)
    • Safety standards are applied according to in-house or third-party testing
    • No KATS (Korean Agency for Technology and Standards) registration or certification needed
    • The KC certificate has no expiration date
    • No factory inspection or market surveillance is required
    • Some product examples for Type 3 include: fluorescent lamp starter, DC power supplies, charger for electronic devices

 

Certification Process

The process for KC Certification is similar to other international certifications. The first step includes the preparation of application forms and supporting documents including:

  • Application Form
  • Business License
  • Complete contact details of the Korean importer and the production plant
  • Product descriptions and/or user manuals (in Korean language)
  • List of critical components
  • KC or CB certificates of critical components
  • Circuit diagrams (only electronic products)
  • Example for the marking
  • If available, CB certificate and test report of the products according to IEC standard, that includes 220V (AC) 60Hz

After submitting the application documents for the KC Certification, they will be checked for consistency and accuracy by the relevant authority. As a part of the approval process to receive the KC Mark, it is required to have the products tested by an internationally accredited test lab. A factory inspection will also be required in accordance with the Korean regulations for safety products.
