The Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) proposes to revise the inspection standards for static converters, power supplies, accumulators and battery chargers to take into account technology advances and consistency of regulatory management. Below are summaries of the proposed requirements:
1. To adopt the most recent version of national standards for electrical motorcycles, which involve those for static converters (CNS 15425-1), power supplies (CNS 15425-1) and accumulators (CNS 15424-1, 15424-2 and 15387);
2. To provide alternative inspection standards for 3C battery chargers (CNS 13783-1, 60335-1 and 60335-2-29; and
3. To require marking of presence conditions of 6 hazardous substances (Section 5 of CNS 15663, accumulators being exempted from such marking) .
The conformity assessment procedure for products subject to this notified measure remains the same, i.e. Registration of Product Certification.
