2023年3月20日，韓國技術標準局 (KATS) 發佈了《關於電器和消費品安全控制法運營公告的通知》的修正案，該修正案旨在改變某些電子產品的適用範圍和安全控制級別。
此外，由於KC 62619標準的修訂版 (含有鹼性或其他非酸性電解質的二次電池和電池-工業應用中使用的二次鋰電池和電池的安全要求) 將產品範圍擴大到移動ESS (儲能系統) 電池，並與國際標準IEC 62619 Ed.2.0相協調，本次修訂也對《通知》進行了這些修改。
On 20 March 2023, the South Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) issued an amendment to the Notice on Operation Bulletin of Electrical Appliances and Consumer Products Safety Control Act.
The amendment has been issued to change the scope of application and level of safety control for certain electronic products.
Specific changes of the amendment are as follows:
- Downgrading the safety control level of electric heating pads and foot warmers with DC-rated voltage, from “safety verification” to “supplier’s declaration of conformity”.
- Merging similar electrical appliances subject to safety management:
- electric rice cookers and electric insulated rice cookers (deleting electric insulated rice cookers);
- electric cooking ranges, electric hobs and hot plates (deleting electric hobs and hotplates);
- Changing the term “rated capacity” used for certain products such as transformers and power converters to “rated output”.
- Updating the status of safety standards for electrical appliances subject to safety management, with regard to the following standards:
- KC 62196-1 on Plugs, socket-outlets, vehicle connectors, vehicle inlets and adaptors – Conductive charging of electric vehicles, Part 1: General requirements;
- KC 62196-3 on Plugs, socket-outlets, vehicle connectors, vehicle inlets and adaptors – Conductive charging of electric vehicles, Part 3: Dimensional compatibility requirements for DC and AC/DC pin and contact tube vehicle coupler, etc.
- Correcting certain terms and errors.
Moreover, since the revised version of standard KC 62619 (Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes – Safety requirements for secondary Lithium cells and batteries, for use in industrial applications) expanding the product scope to mobile ESS (Energy Storage System) batteries and harmonising with the international standard IEC 62619 Ed.2.0 has been issued, this amendment also introduces these changes to the Notice.
Specific changes in this regard are as follows:
- Relaxation of detailed criteria for the model classification of lithium secondary battery system – Based on the maximum parallel-connected product of single cells constituting batteries, parallel-connected products below this can be registered as derivative models
- Addition of MOSFET applied to small ESS products to safety management targets
- Update of the status of safety standards for electrical appliances subject to safety management, with respect to a revision of KC62619
This Notice entered into force on 20 March 2023.
草案主要要求強制性應用工業標準TIS 62133第2部分《含鹼性或其他非酸性電解質的二次電池和電池》。標準草案與IEC 62133-2:2021相同。
