Business Overview


What is conformity assessment?

The conformity assessment on communication appliances is implemented in accordance with Item 2 of Article 58 of Radio Waves Act and is categorized into three certifications of conformity certification, conformity registration, and provisional certification. Anyone who wants to manufacture, sell, or import communication equipment must receive one of three certifications of conformity certification, conformity registration, and provisional certification for the product.

Category of Conformity Assessment System

① Conformity Certification
In case of manufacturing, selling or importing equipment that may harm the propagation environment and broadcasting communication network or that may significantly disrupt electromagnetic waves or be influenced by it

② Conformity Registration
In case of manufacturing, selling or importing communication appliances that are not applicable for conformity

③ Provisional Conformity
In case of manufacturing, selling or importing appliances by tagging the them with regional, validity and certified conditions after the conformity assessment according to domestic and international standards, specifications and technical standards, due to missing the standards of conformity assessment on communication appliances or because of unavailability of conformity assessment for other reasons

Required Documents


What is the basic model?

It refers to the specimen of communication appliances that have the same internal electrical circuit, structure, and performance and similar functions.

What is the derivative model?

It refers to products that have similar electrical circuit, structure, and functions with the basic model and that use the same conformity assessment number as the basic model.

What is the conformity assessment?

- Because this is certification by model, the name of every model from the same manufacturing plants must be different.
- When the same product is being manufactured at various factories with different addresses, the certification does not need to be obtained by every manufacturing factory. (But, an additional change by the manufacturer must be made.)
- When the same product is being imported by the importer or seller, each needs to obtain the conformity registration.
