South Korea began to implement the new version of the electrical safety standard KC 62368-1 on August 27, 2021.

The main changes are explained as follows:

1. The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) announced that it has officially released the new standard KC 62368-1, which is a merged version of IT and AV products, to replace K 60950-1, K 60950-22, and KC 60065. From now on, KC certification applications based on the third edition of IEC 62368-1 (IEC 62368-1: 2018) CB can be accepted.

2. There is no plan to increase the test of IEC 62368-1 second edition at present, and only the IEC 62368-1 third edition CB transfer scheme is applicable.

3. KC 62368-1 is applicable to all IT/AV equipment originally under the control of KC. The original IT equipment standard K 60950-1, K 60950-22 and AV equipment standard K 60065 can be used in parallel until December 31, 2022. Applications for the K 60950-1 standard can be accepted until 2023, and K 60950-1 applications will not be accepted from 2023.

4. The issued K 60950-1 standard certificate is still valid, but the technical changes starting from January 1, 2023 will be mandatory to upgrade to the latest version. You must apply for the KC 62368-1 standard certificate.
