Korean Testing Laboratory (KTL)

What is the Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL)

The Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL) is one of the three main testing laboratories and certification bodies in Korea. It was founded in 1966 with support from UNESCO as the Korea Fine Instrument Center (FIC).

In 1983, the name was changed to Korea Industrial Technology Center (KIMM) and in 1989, it was subordinated under the governmental research center Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KAITECH).

The name was changed to KTL in 1999, and it was only in 2006 that KTL became an independent organization, not directly subordinated to a government organization. In 2015, the headquarters moved to the city of Jinju (Gyeongsangnam Province) in the south of Korea.




Responsibilities of the Korean Testing Laboratory’s

In addition to its main activity as a testing and certification body, KTL has set itself the following additional goals:

  • Supporting the fourth industrial revolution through the development of standards and test platforms
  • Promote safety for industry and consumers
  • Support government-funded research projects to promote key Korean industries.

Like KTC and KTR, KTL can also issue KC certifications and KC EMC certifications, which are mandatory for many product groups, and conduct the corresponding product tests.

Additionally, KTL can also process applications for KC’s certifications for explosion-proof electrical components, just like KGS and KOSHA.
