What is KC Mark?
Implemented by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) in 2009, Korea Certification (KC) Mark is a mandatory certification mark that must appear on products such as electrical appliances, toys, textile listed in the related Korean laws and ordinances. The KC mark is designed to integrate thirteen certification marks previously required by mandatory certification systems from the Ministry of Knowledge and Economy (MKE) and the Ministry of Labor (MOL). By 2011, mandatory certifications required by all Korean ministries will use the KC mark. To comply with Korean government efforts to protect public health and safety, manufacturers and importers of toys must obtain the KC Mark from authorized testing institutions prior to product distribution in the Korean market.
