Broadcasting and Communication Equipment Conformity Assessment System

The conformity assessment system for broadcasting and communication equipment is implemented in accordance with Article 58-2 of the Radio Wave Act and is classified into three categories: conformity certification, conformity registration, and provisional certification. Any person who intends to manufacture, sell or import broadcasting and communication equipment must undergo conformity assessment on the applicable conformity certification, conformity registration or provisional certification among the relevant equipment.

Broadcasting and Communication Equipment Conformity Assessment System

Conformity certification

Conformity evaluation that must be certified through tests related to conformity assessment standards of designated test institutes as materials that may cause harm to the radio wave environment and broadcasting and communication networks, and materials that are seriously affected by electromagnetic interference or interfere with normal operation from electromagnetic waves.

Conformity registration

This is a conformity assessment that registers after testing or conforming to the conformity assessment criteria if you intend to manufacture, sell, or import broadcasting and communications equipment that are not subject to conformity certification.

Provisional Certification

If conformity assessment standards for broadcasting and communication equipment are not in place, or if conformity assessment is difficult due to other reasons, the conformity assessment is conducted according to domestic and international standards and technical standards. This is a conformity assessment that allows import and sale.
