Korean KC (Korea Certificate) certification of ITAV products

1 KC definition
Within the scope of KC certified products, the KC Mark Certification Products List (KC certified product list) implements the "self-regulatory (voluntary) safety confirmation system" in accordance with the provisions of the Korean Electrical Goods Safety Management Law for the safety management of electrical goods according to the degree of hazard, which is divided into two modes:
A. "Safety certification object electrical appliances" - All electronic products belonging to mandatory products must be certified by KC Mark before they can be sold in the Korean market, and they need to undergo factory review and product sampling test every year.
B. "Self-regulated (voluntary) safety confirmation object electrical appliances" - factory review is not required for every five years.
Note: KC certification is required for sales in South Korea. Only the certification mode is different. It doesn't mean you can do it or not. I hope you know.

4. ITAV equipment exported to South Korea should be certified according to product classification
A, 09 audio and video application equipment, including TV, player and other audio and video application equipment - 36 products, all belong to self-discipline certification.

PS: Compulsory safety certification requires factory inspection, and annual inspection is the same as CCC in China. Self-regulation safety certification only needs testing and evaluation, without factory review.

5 Benchmarks for unit division are as follows
A. Voltage (below 150V, 150V-480V, other conditions)
B. Rated power (under 50w/100W, 50-100w/100w-200w, etc.)
C. Impact classification of IP waterproof grade and insulation grade

6. ITAV products are exported to Korea for KC certification, main test items and standard implementation requirements
1. EMC-General standard: KN32/35, etc
2. Safety - General standards include: KC60065, KC60950, KC62368 and other corresponding standards for different types of products
