In today’s world, consumers are more aware of the products they purchase and their safety features. Japan has been a leader in consumer protection and has introduced various measures to ensure the safety of its citizens. One such measure is the PSE mark, which is a mandatory safety certification mark for electrical and electronic products sold in Japan.
What is the PSE mark?
The PSE mark is a mandatory safety certification mark for electrical and electronic products sold in Japan. It certifies that the product meets the safety standards set by the Japanese Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law (DENAN). If a product without the PSE mark is sold in Japan, it is considered a violation of the Japanese Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law. The manufacturer of the product may face legal action, and the product may be recalled or banned from sale.
What products require the PSE mark?
This includes appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, power supplies, chargers, LED lighting products, and air conditioners, as well as electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and cameras.

What are the benefits of the PSE mark for consumers?
The PSE mark ensures that the products sold in Japan meet the safety standards set by the DENAN. This means that the products are safe to use and do not pose any risk to the consumers. The mark also provides consumers with peace of mind, knowing that the products they purchase have been tested and certified by a registered certification body.
What are the benefits of the PSE mark for manufacturers?
For manufacturers, the PSE mark is a certification that their products meet the safety standards set by the DENAN. This means that their products can be sold in Japan, which is one of the largest markets in the world. The mark also provides manufacturers with a competitive advantage, as it assures consumers that their products are safe to use.
How does the PSE mark differ from other safety certifications?
The PSE mark is specific to Japan and is mandatory for all products sold in the country. Other safety certifications, such as the CE Mark and UL Mark, are recognized globally and are not mandatory for all products sold in specific countries.
How long is the PSE mark valid?
The PSE mark is valid for five years from the date of issue. After five years, the product must undergo another round of testing and inspection to ensure that it still meets the safety standards set by the DENAN.
How long does the process take?
The time it takes to obtain the PSE mark can vary depending on the product and the complexity of the testing process. However, working with GTG can help streamline the process and ensure that your product is certified as quickly as possible.
How much does it cost?
The cost of obtaining the PSE mark with GTG can vary depending on the product and the services required. However, the company offers competitive pricing and can provide a quote based on your specific needs.
How can GTG assist you with PSE mark?
The PSE mark is crucial for businesses that want to sell their electrical products in Japan. Without it, your products can’t be legally sold in the country. The PSE mark is issued by a registered testing organization (RTO) or a registered certification bodies authorized by the Japanese government. These certification bodies conduct tests and inspections to ensure that the product meets the safety standards set by the DENAN. Once the product has passed all the safety tests, the certification body issues the PSE Mark.
The testing process can be complex and time-consuming, and the requirements can vary depending on the product. In addition, the documentation required for certification must be in Japanese, which can be a significant barrier for businesses.
