Serbia 塞尔维亚

2020年3月6日塞尔维亚官方公报发布第21/2020号法规,修订电磁兼容性规则 (EMC) 和特定电压限制内使用的电气设备规则 (LVD),主要改变为塞尔维亚EMC和LVD CoC从2022年1月1日起不再强制。在此日期之前,应继续申请EMC和LVD CoC。2022年1月1日起,非无线电设备CE标志可被接受以证明符合规范,但是对于无线产品,仍然需要获得National RS CoC。塞尔维亚标志对于非无线电设备仍然是强制的,但是不需标示发证机构的编号和年份。

On 6th March 2020, Regulation No. 21/2020 was published on the Serbian Official Gazette. This regulation is an amendment to the Rulebook on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Rulebook on the Electrical Equipment Intended for Use within Certain Voltage Limits (LVD).The main change in the amendment is that Serbian EMC and LVD Certificates of Conformity (CoCs) will no longer be mandatory from 1st January 2022. Until this date, should continue to seek EMC and LVD CoC’s for applicable equipment. Instead, CE marking will be acceptable for non-radio devices to demonstrate compliance, but for Wireless products it is still required to obtain National RS CoC. The Serbian mark is still required for non-radio devices, but the Notified Body number and year are no need to be indicated anymore.


South Korea 韩国

[法规草案] 有关韩国KC62368-1:2021的颁布实施草案。

预计在今年7月开始实施KC 62368-1:2021标准,但目前尚未正式确定时间,处于听取意见阶段,因此仍需继续关注其实施日期。

草案提出,自2023年1月1日开始,仅能接受KC 62368-1:2021的标准;而在2022年12月31日前,标准KC 60065,K 60950-1以及K 60950-22仍然有效,客户也可继续提交这类标准的KC申请。

草案提出,对于已经签发的KC 60065,K 60950-1以及K 60950-22的KC证书,如不作变动,证书可以继续使用。但是,从2023年1月1日开始,一旦客户需要对KC证书进行变更或者报备,就必须同时进行标准升级,将证书标准同步为KC 62368-1:2021。


Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) has released a draft of the standard of KC62368-1 (harmonized with IEC62368-1:2018) on April 19.2021. It is planned to be published after a period of hearing comments on the draft for 3 months. It is expected to be enforced in July, but it’s not confirmed yet. When KC62368-1:2021 is enforced, CBTC/TR of IEC62368-1:2018 is acceptable for KC approval.

The existing standards KC 60065, K 60950-1, and K 60950-22 are applicable until December 31, 2022 (Grace period). It means that new standard KC62368-1:2021 and the existing standards will all be valid during this grace period, but from Jan.1, 2023, only KC62368-1:2021 is aplicable.

The previous KC certificates don’t need to apply for the update of standard. However, if the certified product needs to be revised technically and apply for revision, it should be updated to the latest KC standard, KC62368-1:2021 after Jan.1, 2023.

能源效率要求 Energy Efficiency Requirements

Chile 智利

2021年4月5日,智利能源部发布一项关于微波能效标签技术规范的决议。标签的目的是根据有效能耗向最终用户告知家用微波炉的能效水平。数字控制和机械控制的微波炉也包括在内,但不包含直径≥200 mm或高度≥120 mm负载的微波炉。该技术规范于2021年4月5日生效,但是具体强制实施日期还没有出台。

On 5 April 2021 the Chilean Ministry of Energy published a Resolution on the energy efficiency label for microwaves.

The Resolution approves the technical specifications of the energy efficiency label for microwave ovens.

The purpose of the label is to inform the final consumer of the energy efficiency level of domestic microwave ovens based on active energy consumption. This document is based on IRAM 62412 of 2019 and the energy efficiency is classified using a 5-letter comparative system, where A corresponds to the most efficient products and E to the least efficient.

Microwave ovens with digital control and mechanical control are included in the scope, with the exception of microwaves :loads with diameters ≥ 200 mm or with height ≥ 120 mm.

This Resolution entered into force on 5.04.2021, but SEC must to launch it for the entry in force by a different resolution.

The Decree outlines the obligations of producers or importers of appliances, including:

  • Affixing the energy label on the product or packaging in a clear and prominent way;
  • Ensuring a data sheet that explains the energy label and its levels, according to Moroccan standards, accompanies the product;
  • Keeping the technical documents and energy performance and labelling data for a period of ten years from the date of production/import of the product.

The obligations are at present broadly defined, but these are expected to be clarified by the Minister of Energy, Mines and the Environment and the Minister of Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy, entrusted with the implementation of this decree, who will issue a decision on management and control, as well as conformity assessment methods and the approved test bodies and laboratories.

This Decision entered into force on 5 April 2021.

Serbia 塞尔维亚


On 28 April 2021, the Serbian Ministry of Energy and Mining published a Pravilnik that prescribes the energy efficiency labelling requirements for household dishwashers that are powered by electricity.

It specifies:

The method of labelling, the appearance and content of the energy efficiency label, the form and content of the data list, the data contained in the technical documentation to enable the assessment of the accuracy of the information contained on the label and in the data list;

The methodology for determining the energy efficiency class, standard and measurement methods used to obtain the information contained on the label and in the data sheet, the place where the label is placed on the household dishwasher;

The way the label and/or information is provided to consumers when buying or renting a household dishwasher via the internet, catalogue, telemarketing or any other distance selling platform.

This Ordinance applies to household dishwashers, including built-in household dishwashers and washing machines that are powered by the mains and can also be powered by batteries.

This Ordinance does not apply to:

1) Dishwashers to which the regulation on machine safety applies;

2) Household dishwashers with battery power that can be connected to the mains with a specially purchased rectifier alternating current in direct current.

Article 14 specifically states that this law is in conformity with the EU Energy Labelling Regulation on Dishwashers (EU) 2019/2017. However, although it defines the EPREL database and QR code in the definitions section, this Pravilnik does not contain a requirement to register the information from the data sheet into the European EPREL database for energy labelling of products. This being said the QR code from the EPREL is used on the energy label itself.

This Ordinance entered into force on 29 April 2021.

塞尔维亚政府于2021年4月22日制定该法规,对之前必须强制贴标签的产品列表进行修订,以与欧盟的《能源标签框架法规》与受管制的产品类别列表保持一致。该法规将“电视”一词替换为“电子显示器”,“电灯泡”也被修改为“光源”,从而包括所有类型的光源。 此外,该修正案在具有强制性能源标签的产品列表中增加了具有零售功能的制冷设备。 本法规计划2021年5月1日生效,但电子显示器的标签要求将于2021年7月1日生效。 自2021年9月1日起投放市场的具有零售功能的光源和制冷设备应按照2013年能源标签法规进行标示。

This Regulation, enacted on 22 April 2021 by the Serbian Government, amends the list of products subject to mandatory labelling under Article 2 of the Regulation of 21 October 2013 on the Labelling of Energy-Related Products to harmonize with the list of product groups subject to the EU’s Energy Labelling Framework Regulation.

The Regulation amends Article 2 by substituting the terms “televisions” for “electronic displays”. “Electric light bulb” is also modified to “light sources”, thereby including all types of light sources.

Further, the amendment adds refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function to the list of products subject to mandatory energy labelling.

The present Regulation is scheduled to enter into force on 1 May 2021 with the exception of labelling requirements for electronic displays which will apply with effect from 1 July 2021.

Light sources and refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function placed on the market as of 1 September 2021 shall be labelled in accordance with the Energy Labelling Regulation, 2013.
