Top Ten Global LED Lighting Certification Standards

Do you know a few of the world’s top ten LED lighting certification standards?

In the context of energy shortages, it can be said that energy conservation is an important issue we face. LED has always been called a new generation of green light sources. Its energy saving, environmental protection, long life and other advantages make the LED lighting industry a green industry that countries focus on. In view of the increasingly mature and rapid development of LED lighting technology, in order to regulate the emerging market of LED lighting, some important global LED regional markets have introduced relevant technical regulations or standards, and have put forward certification requirements for the application of LED lighting certification.

3C certification

The 3C certification is called the “Compulsory Product Certification System”. It is a product conformity assessment system implemented by the Chinese government to protect consumers’ personal safety and national security, strengthen product quality management, and implement laws and regulations. 3C certification is mainly to try to solve the long-standing policy of multiple occurrences and duplicates in the Chinese product certification system through a package of solutions such as “unified catalogue, unified standards, technical regulations, conformity assessment procedures, unified certification marks, and unified charging standards”. Accreditation, recurring charges, and non-discrimination of certification practices and enforcement actions, and the establishment of technical regulations, standards and conformity assessment procedures consistent with international rules can facilitate trade facilitation and liberalization.

ISO9000 certification

The certification bodies of ISO9000 quality system certification are all authorized institutions approved by the national accreditation body, and the audit of the quality system of the enterprise is very strict. For the internal enterprise, quality management can be carried out in accordance with the internationally standardized quality system that has been strictly audited, truly meeting the requirements of legalization and scientificization, greatly improving work efficiency and product qualification rate, and rapidly improving the economic and social benefits of enterprises. . For the outside of the enterprise, when the customer knows that the supplier is managed according to international standards, has obtained the ISO9000 quality system certification certificate, and has strict audit and regular supervision by the certification body, it can be sure that the company can stably produce qualified products and even The trustworthy enterprise of excellent products can safely enter into a supply and sales contract with the enterprise and expand the market share of the enterprise.

UL certification

UL is a shorthand for the Underwriters Laboratories. The UL Safety Laboratory is the most authoritative in the United States and the largest private institution in the world for safety testing and identification. It is an independent, profitable, professional organization that tests for public safety. It uses scientific testing methods to determine the extent to which various materials, devices, products, equipment, buildings, etc. are hazardous or hazardous to life and property; to determine, prepare, and issue appropriate standards and to help reduce and prevent life. The property is subject to loss of information, and at the same time conducts fact-finding business.

FCC certification

Established by COMMUNICATIONACT in 1934, the US Federal Communications Commission is an independent agency of the US government and is directly accountable to Congress. The FCC coordinates domestic and international communications by controlling radio, television, telecommunications, satellite and cable. Many radio applications, communications products and digital products require the FCC’s approval to enter the US market. The FCC committee investigates and studies the various stages of product safety to find the best way to solve problems, while the FCC also includes radios, aircraft inspections, and more.

CE certification

CE certification, that is, only the product does not endanger the basic safety requirements of human, animal and goods safety, rather than the general quality requirements, the coordination directive only specifies the main requirements, the general directive requirements are standard tasks. Therefore, the exact meaning is that the CE mark is a safety pass mark and not a quality pass mark. It is the “main requirement” that forms the core of the European Directive.

The “CE” mark is a safety certification mark and is regarded as a passport that the manufacturer opens and enters the European market. In the EU market, the “CE” mark is a compulsory certification mark. Whether it is a product produced by an enterprise within the EU or a product produced by another country, in order to freely circulate in the EU market, the “CE” mark must be affixed.

MET certification

The MET certification mark applies to the US and Canadian markets: The MET mark with C-US indicates that the product has been tested and meets applicable US and Canadian standards and can enter both markets simultaneously.

CB certification

CB system (IEC system for qualified testing and certification of electrical products) is an international system operated by IECEE. The certification bodies of IECEE member countries test the safety performance of electrical products based on IEC standards. The test results are CB test report and CB. The test certificate is mutually recognized in the IECEE member states. The aim is to reduce international trade barriers that arise from the need to meet different national certification or approval criteria.

CSA certification

CSA is the abbreviation of the Canadian Standards Association, which was founded in 1919 and is the first non-profit organization in Canada to develop industry standards. Products such as electronics and electrical appliances sold in the North American market require safety certification. Currently CSA is Canada’s largest safety certification body and one of the most famous safety certification bodies in the world. It provides safety certification for all types of products in machinery, building materials, electrical appliances, computer equipment, office equipment, environmental protection, medical fire safety, sports and entertainment.

GS certification

The meaning of GS is that security is certified and there is also the meaning of German security. GS certification is a voluntary certification based on the German Product Safety Law (GPGS) and tested according to the European Union Standard EN or the German Industrial Standard DIN. It is a recognized German safety certification mark in the European market.

VDE certification

The VDE Testing and Certification Institute in Offenbach, Germany is a research institute of the German Institute of Electrical Engineers, founded in 1920. As a neutral, independent organization, VDE’s laboratories inspect and certify electrical products in accordance with German VDE national standards or European EN standards, or IEC International Electrotechnical Commission standards. In many countries, the VDE certification mark is even more famous than the national certification mark, especially recognized and valued by importers and exporters.

The above ten certification standards are to regulate the emerging market of LED lighting. Only the specifications and requirements can make LED lighting develop healthily in a sound market.
