TOY & JUVENILE PRODUCTS TESTING
To protect Korea’s public health and safety, toys to be placed onto the Korean market must to test and certify according to the Korean Toys Regulations and affixing the Korea Certification (KC) Mark. 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 Labour (MOL).
All toys sold in Korea are required to comply with the safety and chemical requirements before obtaining and affix the KC Mark. These requirements are laid down by The Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) in The Special Act on Safety of Children’s Products.
Whilst KC certification is issued by Korea-based certification bodies that have been approved by the Korea Standards Association (KSA), organizations such as Bureau Veritas can assist manufacturers in the preparation of application documents, as well as conducting product testing aligned with the requirements of KC certification standards.
