BRIEF ANALYSIS OF THE JUNE 2022 KOREAN REGULATORY UPDATES

RELEASE DATE:2022-07-15 17:14
BriefSince the 1980s, Korea has gradually established and improved its own automotive product certification system with reference to the international typical automotive product management system. Since 2016, ATIC's Regulatory Research Department has been continuously tracking and researching Korean KMVSS, MOE, MOTIE and subsidy policies and regulations, and has formed a complete set of regulatory tracking solutions. We are able to provide one-stop services such as regulatory lists, regulatory translations, regulatory subscriptions and regulatory updates to ensure that domestic OEMs can quickly respond to changes in Korean regulations.



KOREAN AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCT CERTIFICATION
Korean automotive product certification includes mandatory certification (environmental certification, energy certification) and self-certification (KMVSS safety certification).The mandatory certification regulations stipulate that any vehicle entering the Korean market must pass the safety, environmental, and energy labels, which are regulated by the Ministry of Organic Land Transportation (MOLIT), the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MOE), and the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy (MOTIE), respectively. For electric vehicles, they are required to pass a subsidy evaluation test supervised by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MOE), and the MOE grants subsidies to those that pass the test, the amount of which varies according to policy.

For automotive parts entering the aftermarket, in addition to self-certification based on KMVSS and KC mark (products including auto glass, headlights, seat belts, brake pads, brake hoses, etc.), KC (Korea Certification) certification (products such as brake fluid, jacks, tires) regulated by the Ministry of Industry is also required. For in-vehicle communication devices, KC radio certification regulated by RRA (products such as wifi, 2g/3g/4g modules, Bluetooth keys, etc.) is required.
