Manufacturers and suppliers of electrical and electronic products wishing to sell in the Japanese market must prove compliance with the stringent technical requirements. However, the high levels of quality and safety demanded by the Japanese authorities can pose significant challenges to foreign companies. To gain access to the Japanese market, foreign companies must also work with a local importer or Notifying Supplier to represent them.
What is Japan PSE Certification?
In Japan, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) is the regulatory agency responsible for ensuring compliance with the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law. The Safety Law regulates the manufacture and sale of electrical and electronic products to prevent potential hazards.
To prove conformity to mandatory technical requirements, the import and sale of Category A electrical and electronic products requires PSE certification through a Registered Conformity Assessment Body. Products may only carry the Diamond PSE Mark after successful certification.
Why is Japan PSE Certification important for your Business?
Having a product certified by an METI Registered Conformity Assessment Body, such as TÜV SÜD, provides assurance that the product is in compliance with Japanese regulations and the required safety standards. Without the PSE Mark, you cannot legally access the Japanese market.
