Power supplies are the backbone of every electronic device, and it is essential to have a deep understanding of the various power supply certifications around the world. These certifications not only ensure that the power supplies are safe, reliable, and energy-efficient, but they also help manufacturers meet legal and regulatory requirements. Now let’s explore some of the most common certifications in major markets.

CE certification

CE certification is a mandatory mark for the European market, indicating that the product meets EU requirements for safety, health, environmental protection, and consumer protection. For power supply products, CE certification includes the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC). Power supplies with CE certification can circulate freely in the EU market.

UL certification

UL certification is a safety certification provided by Underwriters Laboratories in the United States. It primarily targets the North American market and is a crucial pass for power supply products entering the U.S. and Canadian markets. UL tests items include electrical safety, fire protection, and electromagnetic interference. Passing UL certification means the product meets North American safety standards.

CCC certification

CCC stands for China Compulsory Certification, it is China’s national mandatory certification system, applicable to various product categories including power supplies. CCC certification aims to ensure product safety, electromagnetic compatibility, and environmental protection. CCC certified power supply products can be sold in the Chinese market.

FCC certification

FCC certification is the Federal Communications Commission’s standard for controlling electromagnetic interference (EMI). For power supply products, FCC certification ensures they do not cause harmful electromagnetic interference to other electronic devices during use. Obtaining FCC certification is a necessary condition for power supplies entering the U.S. market.

PSE certification

PSE certification is a mandatory certification under Japan’s Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law, applicable to power supply devices in the Japanese market. PSE certification is divided into two marks: diamond PSE mark and circular PSE mark, which are applicable to different product categories. Power supplies with PSE certification can be sold in the Japanese market.

The safety and reliability of power supplies are crucial for both consumers and manufacturers. Through the above certifications, power supply products not only can be legally sold in major markets but also ensure their safety, reliability, environmental protection, and efficiency. These certifications are not only symbols of quality but also protections for consumer rights. Therefore, power supply manufacturers must strictly follow various certification standards in product design and production, ensuring product safety and reliability, and smoothly entering the global market to win more consumer trust.
