South Korea 韓國
KC 62368-1 自2021.08.27發佈後，目前韓國發證機構已經接受案件申請，MoU 只接受 IEC 62368-1: 2018 (第三版) 的CB 轉證。
過渡期2022年12月31日前，KC 60065、K 60950-1兩個標準仍可接受申請KC轉證，2023年1月1日起，KC 60065、K 60950-1標準失效，只接受KC 62368-1 轉證。
2023年1月1日起需要按照新的KC 62368-1 標準的要求來進行產品變更評估同時更新標準。
舊標準證書升級為KC 62368-1 標準後，是否可以保留原KC證書號，目前發證機構仍在討論中。
Since the release of KC 62368-1 on August 27, 2021, the Korean certification bodies have accepted project applications, and MoU only accepts CB with third edition (IEC 62368-1:2018).
Before December 31, 2022, it is the transition period. Clients can still use IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1 to apply for KC 60065 and K 60950-1 certificate. Starting from January 01, 2023, KC 60065 and K 60950-1 standards become invalid; only KC 62368-1 will be accepted. The KC certificate of the old standards will continue to be valid without any changes on the premise of the product.
If there is any change in the product, the product change assessment can be carried out according to the old standards before January 01, 2023, without changing the standard. Starting from January 01, 2023, it is necessary to evaluate product changes and update the standards in accordance with the requirements of the new KC 62368-1 standard.
After the old standard certificate is upgraded to the KC 62368-1 standard, whether the original KC certificate number can be retained is still under discussion by the certification bodies.
