3、 What is classification and definition? Do Amazon Japan beauty machines need to undergo medical device certification? Is the beauty instrument removed from the shelves and required to undergo medical device certification? Do beauty instruments with lasers require PSC certification?

This issue should be the top concern of all beauty instrument sellers. Once a beauty instrument product is recognized as a medical device, Amazon will require the product to be certified for medical devices, including laser beauty instruments, and PSC certification.

These two certifications are relatively expensive among Japanese certifications, and cannot be affordable for small and medium-sized sellers. Once a product is judged to have been removed from the shelves and requires certification for medical devices, or PSC certification, it is basically abandoned due to the high certification price.

What is classification and definition: Due to the role of beauty equipment, it is easy to be judged as a medical device, but beauty equipment itself is not a medical device in design and use. Once it is judged as a medical device by Amazon and requires medical device certification. We can define the classification of this beauty device to prove that it does not belong to medical devices according to Japanese laws and regulations. At the same time, we can avoid the PSC certification catalog for the product. Since the product does not belong to medical devices according to Japanese laws and the beauty device is not within the PSC certification catalog, there is no need to do medical device certification and PSC certification!
