Japan PSE certification

PSE certification is a mandatory safety certification in Japan, used to demonstrate that electrical and electronic products have passed safety standard tests under Japan‘s Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law (DENAN Law) or international IEC standards. Japan‘s DENAN Law, which governs electrical devices and materials, mandates that 498 types of products entering the Japanese market must undergo PSE safety certification. Among them, 165 types of Class A products should obtain the diamond-shaped PSE mark, while 333 types of Class B products should obtain the circular PSE mark.


Deeplight | Quickly use CB certification to apply for Japan Diamond PSE certification

(If there is a CB certificate, Deeplight can assist customers to transfer from CB certification to Japan Diamond PSE certification, which can not only save testing cost, but also save testing time)
1. The IECEE CB system is a global system for mutual recognition of electrical product test certificates
As same time Deeplight can provide customers with a platform to apply for certification marks in multiple countries. Japan JQA and Japan JET are Japan NCB and have joined the CB system of IECEE.
Due to the multilateral agreement formed between the national certification bodies of various countries, manufacturers can obtain national certification of other member states of the CB system by virtue of a CB test certificate issued by an NCB.
It is applicable to the product categories within the scope of the standard catalogue on which the CB test certificate that China declares to be recognized in the IECEE CB system is based on, and is also within the Japan Diamond PSE certified product catalogue.
Therefore, companies that apply for Japan Diamond PSE certification can not only obtain Japan Diamond PSE certification, but also obtain CB certificate and reports simultaneously for companies that do not hold CB certificate.
For enterprises that already hold CB certificate, the corresponding repeated tests can be omitted, which saves certification costs and shortens the certification time.
The safety standards and test methods of electrical products in Japan are basically close to IEC and ISO international standards, especially the standards for household appliances, electronic equipment, lighting appliances and other products are basically equivalent or equivalent to IEC/ISO standards.
2. The basic principles of Japan Diamond PSE certification and CB test report and certificate:
2.1. The product model, specification, manufacturer and production plant in the CB report and certificate must be consistent (or covered) with the product model, specification, manufacturer, and production plant applying for the Japan Diamond PSE certification. If any of them are inconsistent, it will not be recognized.
2.2. The applicant in the CB certificate and the applicant applying for the Japan Diamond PSE certification should be consistent in principle. If there is any inconsistency, the applicant for the Japan Diamond PSE certification should provide the power of attorney of the CB certificate holder (applicant), and the power of attorney should at least include the statement of authorization and the responsibilities of both parties.
2.3. The standard on which the CB certificate is issued should not be lower than the version corresponding to the IEC standard of Japan‘sSpecial Electrical Appliances And Materials Technical Standards Provincial Decree‘.
The content of the standard version on which the CB report is based should cover the current Japan standards in ‘Special Electrical Appliances And Materials Technical Standards Provincial Decree‘, and a reasonable difference test should be made for deviations from the Japan standards. In addition, if the CB certificate and report are more than three years old, the certification body can challenge.
