Serbia 塞爾維亞

2020年3月6日塞爾維亞官方公報發佈第21/2020號法規,修訂電磁相容性規則 (EMC) 和特定電壓限制內使用的電氣設備規則 (LVD),主要改變為塞爾維亞EMC和LVD CoC從2022年1月1日起不再強制。在此日期之前,應繼續申請EMC和LVD CoC。2022年1月1日起取而代之的是,對於非無線電設備CE標誌可被接受以證明符合規範,但是對於無線產品,仍然需要獲得National RS CoC。塞爾維亞標誌對於非無線電設備仍然是強制的,但是不需標示發證機構的編號和年份。

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 韓國

​[法規草案] 有關韓國KC62368-1:2021的頒佈實施草案。

預計在今年7月開始實施KC 62368-1:2021標準,但目前尚未正式確定時間,處於聽取意見階段,因此仍需繼續關注其實施日期。

草案提出,自2023年1月1日開始,僅能接受KC 62368-1:2021的標準;而在2022年12月31日前,標準KC 60065,K 60950-1以及K 60950-22仍然有效,客戶也可繼續提交這類標準的KC申請。

草案提出,對於已經簽發的KC 60065,K 60950-1以及K 60950-22的KC證書,如不作變動,證書還是可以繼續使用。但是,從2023年1月1日開始,一旦客戶需要對KC證書進行變更或者報備時,就必須同時進行標準升級,將證書標準同步為KC 62368-1:2021。

如有其他詳細資訊提出,後續再作更新。

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.

Chile 智利

2021年4月5日,智利能源部發佈一項關於微波能效標籤技術規範的決議。標籤的目的是根據有效能耗向最終使用者告知家用微波爐的能效水準。數位控制式和機械控制式的微波爐也包括在內,但不包含直徑≥200 mm或高度≥120 mm的負載的微波爐。該技術規範於2021年4月5日生效,但是具體強制實施日期還沒有公佈。

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.

2021年4月28日,塞爾維亞能源與礦業部發佈家用電動洗碗機的能效標籤要求,適用於家用洗碗機,包括內建式家用洗碗機和可由室電供電也可由電池供電的洗碗機。該條例於2021年4月29日生效。

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.

 

Serbia 塞爾維亞

塞爾維亞政府於2021年4月22日制定該法規,對之前必須強制貼標籤的產品清單進行修訂,以與歐盟的《能源標籤框架法規》與受管制的產品類別清單保持一致。該法規將“電視”一詞替換為“電子顯示器”,“電燈泡”也被修改為“光源”,從而包括所有類型的光源。 此外,該修正案在具有強制性能源標籤的產品清單中增加了具有零售功能的製冷設備。 本法規計畫2021年5月1日生效,但電子顯示器的標籤要求將於2021年7月1日生效。 自2021年9月1日起投放市場的具有零售功能的光源和製冷設備應按照2013年能源標籤法規進行標示。

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.

The document further brought the following changes:

    • adding portable garden vacuums/blowers and all-in-one washers/dryers to the EEE subject to safety certification, in Annex 1,
    • easing the level of safety control for audio processors and video processors, by changing them from products subject to safety assurance to products subject to the supplier’s assurance of conformity, in Annexes 2 and 3,
    • altering the name of Christmas tree lighting fixtures to chain lighting fixtures, in accordance with international standards, in Annex 10,
    • expanding of requirements for exemption from declaration for import customs clearance, in Annex 16,
    • improving the list of electrical appliance safety management parts by adding car adapters and chain lighting fixtures, etc., in Annex 20,
  • clarifying the inspection items when checking the same model of electrical appliance, in Annex 21.

The amendment entered into force on 3 May 2021. For products reported for safety verification before the enforcement of this notice, it shall be deemed that the supplier’s conformity verification and safety confirmation of the products have been reported.
