New KC EMC Standards to become mandatory in May

The Korean Radio Research Agency (RRA) circulated new standards for KC EMC in their Announcement No. 2021-10 on February 8.

The changes take effect three months after publication and thus the new standards will be mandatory from May 9, 2021.

For KC EMC approvals it means that test reports on the technical requirements for electromagnetic compatibility will have to comply with and show the new standards in order to be accepted.



The following table provides a comparison between the old and new standards:

If you have products for which a KC EMC registration for electromagnetic compatibility is required we would be happy to support you with the registration under these new standards.

For products with radio technologies, KC EMC certification is also required to gain access to the South Korean market. This applies to products with radio technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RFID or other wireless communication technologies. MPR International GmbH has solid experience in Korea certification and competent local partners.

If you need assistance or have any questions regarding Korean certifications such as KCKC EMCKCs or KCs for explosion safety products, feel free to contact us any time.
