KC Certification for Korea – Made Easy

Do you require product certifications to enter the Korean market?

Korean product certifications can be a complex hurdle due to numerous standards, opaque regulatory changes and difficult communication with Korean authorities.

With over 17 years of experience in the certification business and more than 300 plants serviced worldwide, MPR International GmbH is your best resource for competent service when it comes to certifications for Korea.

We can support you with the following certifications

KC Safety

The KC Safety approval is mainly concerned with three main product categories for end users or consumers: electronics, household products and products for children. The complexity of the certification process is divided into three different types and depends on the product in question. The strictest certification mode also requires factory audits in addition to product tests in Korea.


Electronic products must prove electromagnetic compatibility as part of the KC EMC approval. This does not only apply to products with RF technologies. Depending on the place of manufacture, there are different ways to obtain the KC EMC approval. Products with RF technologies must undergo a more stringent procedure and usually require product testing in Korea.


In the industrial sector, the KCs certification must be obtained from the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency (KOSHA) for certain machines and safety equipment. Depending on the specific product type, there are two different certification modes. These differ significantly in terms of their procedure, but can both present a complex hurdle for access to the Korean market.

KCs Ex Certification

In Korea, explosion-proof electrical components must obtain the KCs Ex certification. The certification must be obtained via the manufacturer and there is a choice between approval for a one-time delivery and a manufacturer certification. IECEx certifications can be used to simplify the process, but should not be understood as a simple transfer of the IECEx certification.

KGS Factory Registration

A KGS factory registration is required for certain gas and pressure equipment. This is particularly relevant in view of the expansion of the hydrogen economy in South Korea. Pressure vessels, safety valves, fuel cells and electrolysers are subject to approval. The KGS factory registration enables plants to produce and export equipment to Korea. After obtaining the factory approval, an inspection at product level is usually required.
