KC Mark Certification for South Korea – Product Groups

The KC Mark Certification covers three product groups: consumer goods, children’s products and electronic products (link to subpage).


    1. KC Mark Certification – Consumer Goods

Consumer products which might be harmful to the health or safety of the consumer by their usage or through their characteristics, or if they pose a pollution risk to the environment need to get a KC Mark certification.

Example products which need a KC Korea Certificate for South Korea:

      • Household Appliances (e.g. fridge, dish washer)
      • Audio & Video Devices
      • Scales
      • Fire Extinguishers
      • Glasses Frames
      • Fans
      • Tents
      • Motorcycle helmets
      • High-visibility clothing

Other consumer goods that are required to have the KC label include automotive spare parts in the following categories:

      • Brake Hoses (FMVSS 106)
      • Seat Belt (UNECE Reg. 16)
      • Headlamps (UNECE Reg. 98, 112, 128)
      • Retro-Reflecting Devices (UNECE Reg. 3)
      • Rear Underrun Protective Devices (UNECE Reg. 58)
      • Replacement Brake Parts (UNECE Reg. 90)
      • Replacement Wheels for Passenger Cars (UNECE Reg. 124)
      • Glass Safety Glazing (UNECE Reg 43)
      • Rear Marking Plates for Heavy and Long Vehicles (UNECE Reg. 70)
      • Retro-Reflecting Materials (UNECE Reg. 70)
      • Warning Triangles (UNECE Reg. 27)
      • Rear Marking Plates for Slow-Moving Vehicles (UNECE Reg. 69)

The most important documents, which will be used for the KC Mark certification in South Korea are the Korean “Motor Vehicle Management Act” and the “Korea Motor Vehicle Safety Standard” (KMVSS). The “Motor Vehicle Management Act” deals with the various kinds of vehicles and their registration, as well as the general information about safety standards and self-certification. The “Korea Motor Vehicle Safety Standard” lists the technical features of vehicles and the applicable safety standards.

    1. KC Mark Certification – Toys and other Children’s products

Many products that are intended for or used by children under the age of 13 fall under this category. Amid a special regulation, the Special Children’s Product Safety Act, from 2015 many products require a certification.

This includes the following products:

      • Toys
      • Textiles for children and babies
      • Children’s chairs
      • School supplies
      • Children’s bicycles

A majority of the affected products require at least a KC Safety Confirmation (product tests, but no factory audit). However certain products, for which safety is a major design feature, do require a KC Safety certification, which includes an audit. One example would be child restraint systems. Textiles for children on the other hand usually only need a KC supplier confirmation.
