About the introduction of safety standards

What is PSE

PSE is the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law. Also, do you know that there are two compliance standards (technical standards) in the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law?

"Appended Table 8, 1,2 (102) and appended table 10 chapter 5" is an adaptation standard for the AC adapter alone as a DC power supply. To the contrary, [Appendix 12 (J6xxxx)] is required compliance standard number (J - 6xxxx - x) according to the purpose and purpose of the equipment used by the customer. In the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law, it is required to take appropriate measures according to the intended use and purpose of use.

What is CB REPORT

CBREPORT is a test compliance REPORT (certificate) that clears the technical standards specified in the CB scheme (IEC Electrical Safety Standards Conformance Test System).

Generally, the AC adapter often acquires "CB REPORT" of "IEC 60950 (information communication device) or IEC 60065 (AV device)", but recently, due to diversification of applications and purposes of recent equipment, "IEC 61558 General consumer electronics) "," IEC 61347 (LED) "" IEC 60601 (medical) "etc. are required.

In developing overseas markets, if CB scheme introduction countries need to acquire safety standards of each country, items evaluated by the IEC system (international technical standards) will be exempted from technical tests by utilizing CBREPORT, Evaluation by only technical standards in the destination country, it may be simplified. Also, if the customer needs to use the safety evaluation regulations for safety assessment on the set equipment used, technical tests are exempted because the included AC adapter has already received the evaluation on the power supply.

Matters that are necessary other than safety standards

In addition to safety standards, there are safety standards and regulations related to applications that need to be applied.

Although we will introduce a part here, in recent years adaptation related to "energy regulation" (power efficiency regulation) is necessary in some cases. If you are considering product development to overseas markets, do not you think it is easy to say "You should have acquired even safety standards!"

Actually, overseas, the number of countries that are legally introducing energy saving regulations is increasing. This is to control the AC adapter and other specified equipment.

For example, in North America, there are many things that are thought to be "safe if there is a UL mark" of safety standards, but in fact this is not the case.
There are regulations called [DOE] in the United States, [NRCAN] regulations in Canada, there are regulations requiring adaptation separately from safety standards, please note.
