ABOUT KC MARK Certification

KC MARK Certification - KoreaThe KC (Korea Certification) mark signifies compliance with Korea's product safety requirements for electrical and electronic equipment and is issued by Korea-based certification bodies that have been approved by the Korea Standards Association. Manufacturers and distributors of electronic goods may apply a KC mark to their goods once they have completed the standard procedure:

  • Application – The application process involves the submission of an application form and product description. In addition, the manufacturer must obtain a certificate of registration.
  • Factory audits – Production equipment and processes are inspected and audited for compliance with applicable safety criteria.
  • Product safety testing – The product is tested consistent with the requirements of the applicable safety standard(s).
  • EMC testing – The product is tested for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and immunity.
  • Post-certification surveillance – Regular factory inspections and market surveillance are required to verify continued compliance following certification.

South Korea is one of the world’s leading markets for electrical and electronic equipment and devices. Products that do not have KC certification may be denied entry into the country, and manufacturers of non-certified products found on the market could be subject to penalties. Testing your products for compliance with KC certification requirements ensures legal market access to Korea, as well as acceptance by Korean electronic product buyers.
