What certifications are required for LED lighting fixtures in different countries?
LED is a new generation of the green light source, energy-saving, environmental protection, long life, and other advantages. The LED lighting industry has become a key focus of green industries in various countries. Given the increasing maturity of LED lighting technology and rapid development, to regulate the LED lighting in this emerging market, some critical LED regional markets worldwide have introduced relevant technical regulations or standards, applying LED lighting certification requirements.
1.China's LED lighting certification: CCC certification
The full name of CCC certification is "compulsory product certification system," it is the government's to protect consumer safety and national security and strengthen product quality management according to laws and regulations to implement a product conformity assessment system.
2.European lighting certification: C.E. certification
The "C.E." mark is a safety certification mark, regarded as the manufacturer's passport to open and enter the European market. All products with the "C.E." mark can be sold in each member state of the European Union without meeting the requirements of each member state, thus realizing the free flow of goods within the E.U. member states.
Do LED lights need FCC certification?
3.U.S. Lighting Certification: FCC Certification
FCC certification is the FCC (Federal Communications Commission, the United States Federal Communications Commission) was established in 1934 by COMMUNICATION ACT is an independent agency of the U.S. government, directly responsible to Congress. international communications.
4.U.S. lighting-related certification: U.L. certification
5.U.L. is the U.S. Underwriters Laboratories Inc. is the most authoritative and the world's largest private organization engaged in safety testing and accreditation. It is an independent, not-for-profit, professional organization that conducts tests for public safety. It uses scientific testing methods to study and determine whether various materials, devices, products, equipment, buildings and other hazards to life, property and the extent of the hazard; to determine, prepare, issue the corresponding standards and information to help reduce and prevent loss of life and property while carrying out factual research operations.
6.International Lighting Certification: C.B. Certification
The C.B. system (IEC system for conformity testing and certification of electrical products) is an international system operated by IECEE, in which the certification bodies of IECEE member countries test the safety performance of electrical products based on IEC standards and the test results, i.e., C.B. test reports and C.B. test certificates, are mutually recognized in the IECEE member countries. The purpose is to reduce the international trade barriers arising from the need to meet different countries' certification or approval guidelines.
7.Safety certification mark for lamps and lanterns in Germany: G.S. certification
G.S. certification is a voluntary certification based on the German Product Safety Act (GPGS) and tested by the E.U. harmonized standard EN or German industrial standard DIN, and is a recognized German safety certification mark in the European market.
8.Certification mark related to the safety of German lamps and lanterns: VDE certification
The VDE test institute and certification association is a subsidiary of the Association of German Electrical Engineers, founded in 1920 and enjoys a high reputation in Europe and internationally as an internationally recognized safety testing and certification institute for electrical and electronic appliances and their components. The demand for VDE certification from customers worldwide is on the rise, and VDE test institutes and certification associations perform 18,000 tests per year for approximately 2,200 German customers and approximately 2,700 foreign customers under current European and international standards. To date, more than 200,000 products worldwide have a VDE safety certificate.
9.Canadian Lighting Certification: CSA Certification
CSA is the abbreviation of the Canadian Standards Association, founded in 1919, is the first Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to developing industrial standards. Electronic and electrical products sold in the North American market are required to obtain certification in safety.
PSE certification is a mandatory safety certification in Japan to prove that electrical and electronic products have passed the Japanese Electrical and Material Safety Law (DENAN Law) or the international IEC standard test. Four hundred ninety-eight products enter the Japanese market. Must pass the safety certification. Among them, 165 kinds of A products should obtain the diamond-shaped PSE mark, 333 kinds of B products should obtain the round PSE mark.
11.U.S. lighting-related certification: EnergyStar
EnergyStar, a government program jointly implemented by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to better protect the living environment and conserve energy, was first promoted in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for computer products. Now the scope of this certification has been included in more than 30 categories of products, such as household appliances, heating/cooling equipment, electronic products, lighting products, etc. The most done in the Chinese market are lighting products, including energy-saving lamps (CFL), lamps (RLF), traffic signals and exit signs.
12.Australian lighting certification: SAA certification
SAA certification system is implemented, along with EMC requirements, the Australian national standard certification mark for EMC certification requirements for electronic products. At this stage, SAA has adopted the IEC system standard. The main differences between SAA specification products and EN specification products;
1) The voltage is AC240V50Hz;
2) The use of eight two-pin flat or three-pin eight flat plugs;
3) The use of SAA certified round wire;
13.Hong Kong H.K. certification
Requirements lamp, wire, plug to have VDE / SEMKO / TQM certification, the whole lamp according to EN60598 standard to make test reports, and sign the declaration of conformity can be sold. Voltage AC220V 50Hz, B.S. specification plug, EMC requirements are not mandatory at present.
14.Japan JIS certification
Japan's DENTAL law (Electrical Devices and Materials Control Law) stipulates that 498 products must pass safety certification to enter the Japanese market. Among them, 165 kinds of A products should obtain T-MARK certification, 333 kinds of B products should obtain S-MRK certification. Lamps, i.e., civil or household products that use light sources, belong to category B products and must be made according to JIS standards.
The use of IEC60598 system standards: grid voltage of AC220V ~ 250V 50Hz; plug for the South African three-round pin plug; EMC requirements for electronic products.
British lighting certification: B.S. certification
16.Using the IEC60598 system, the national standard for BS: voltage is AC240V 50Hz; use the square three-prong plug; available B15, B22 bayonet light head.
Safety certification for lighting fixtures: RoHS certification (SGS certification included for compliance with the standard)
Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products (Restriction of the use of certain hazardous Substances), which is the meaning of RoHS, in other words, a simple sentence, is your product environmentally friendly? This is an essential certification for LED packaging products. More famous, especially recognized and valued by importers and exporters.
