PSE certification
1 Introduction
PSE (Product Safety of Electrical Appliance & Materials) certification is a mandatory safety certification in Japan. It is the market access system implemented by the Japanese government for electrical and electronic products. It is the Japanese Electrical Product Safety Law (DENAN). important content. On April 1, 2001, Japan revised the Electric Safety Law, which was administered by METI (Massachusetts of Economy, Trade and Industry). Instead of issuing certificates directly, METI authorized third-party certification bodies to conduct product conformity assessment tests and issue certificates.
METI authorizes the Japan Electrical Safety and Environmental Technology Research Laboratory (JET) and the Japan Quality Assessment Agency (JQA) as Qualification Certification Bodies (ASBs) to conduct market surveillance for electronic and electrical product testing and certification matters in accordance with regulations. In addition, TUV, UL, CQC and other institutions are also qualification certification bodies.
According to the regulations, all regulated electronic and electrical products must first submit a business declaration to the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry before manufacturing or exporting to Japan, and affix the PSE mark on the product according to the regulations. The Electrical Safety Law stipulates that Class A and Class B products must be affixed with a PSE diamond logo and a PSE round logo. There are two applicable standards.
Provincial Order 1: Japanese domestic standards (including EMI standards)
Provincial Order 2: J standard (excluding EMI standard) = IEC standard + Japanese difference
2. Application process
1. The customer prepares samples and materials for submission to the laboratory.
2. The laboratory tests the sample. If the PSE is round, the laboratory should issue a declaration letter.
3. For the PSE diamond, a factory inspection is also required.
4. After the test and inspection, the issuing authority will issue a PSE diamond certificate.
