What’s the application of mandatory certification requirements of the LED light on the Japanese and Mexican market

1, the Japanese market
 
Japan is the world’s major LED industry base, the technological level and production value are ahead of other countries, holding the majority of the LED end market. LED standards are also ahead of other countries in Japan, the first white LED testing standards was develop in Japan. LED lighting products are to enter the Japanese market, we must firstly meet the “Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law” and its related implementation regulations. The power control module of the LED products currently mainly subject to the “Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law” , if the power supply is external, which need to be detected based J61347-2-13 (ie JISC61347-2-13), having been passed, the Diamond PSE signs is affixed. The electromagnetic compatibility needs to meet mandatory J55015 standards.
 
From July 1, 2012, the LED bulbs and LED light fixtures sold on the Japanese market has become the control object of the “Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law”, which need to be affixed Circle PSE Mark. the scope of rated voltage of the LED products controlled is limited at 100 ~ 300V. 50Hz and 60Hz AC circuit is used for the LED lamps and bulbs whose rated power is greater than 1W. Although LED is adopted as the light source of some table lamp, rechargeable flashlight, advertising lights, decorative lights, portable lights and gardens light etc., , but not classified as “LED lamps.” For the certified safety and EMC standards of Japanese LED products, only one province, two province of the harmonized standard has currently not yet been introduced. Therefore, IEC standard relevant to the LED is not among the acceptable range of “Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law”. From July 1, 2012, the most feasible and most cost-saving method is based on the Japanese province1 technical benchmark to manufacture LED bulbs and LED light fixtures.

2, the Mexican market
 
In recent years, Mexico began to attach importance to the green energy industry, actively developing green energy in order to creat the important emerging industries. Since September 1, 2011, the Mexican government announced the formal implementation of energy-saving lighting plan in the national. Mexico has planed to gradually replace the incandescent lamps with energy saving before 2014. Mexico is the largest energy consuming country, its LED lighting market is huge.
 
For LED lighting products, its NOM certification of the safety and energy efficiency is a mandatory requirement to enter the Mexican market, NOM does not currently propose mandatory requirements on the electromagnetic compatibility. Whether locally manufactured or imported products in Mexico shall comply with the relevant NOM standards and product labeling requirements.
 
Mexico LED lighting safety requirements is mainly regulated by NOM-003-SCFI-2000 standard requirements. This standard relates to the safety requirements of the electrical product, which is a normative framework and does not require specific technical requirements, must pass NMX-J-521/1-ANCE-2005 standard test, which is mainly based on the standard IEC60335-1: – Safety of the Household and similar electrical appliances + Mexican bias. While LED lighting products must comply with the consuming information of the NOM-024-SCFI-1998 requirements.
 
In order to meet the energy efficiency requirements of the lighting products in the country ,LED lighting products must pass the mandatory energy efficiency certification to enter the Mexican market The certification is Specifically implemented by the certification organization accredited by the Mexican authorized organization, which is part of compulsory certification of the product in Mexico .Can’t be sold in domestic Mexico until the products belonging to the mandatory energy efficiency certification is certified and affixed the energy efficiency label reflecting the energy use of product.
 
In 2012, the Mexican Ministry of Energy have released two energy efficiency requirements about LED lighting products, , mainly the energy efficiency specifications and test methods for the general lighting of the LED bulbs , and outdoor lighting such as the LED flood light.
For LED lighting products, Don’t be awarded NOM certification until the LED lighting products comply with both the safety and mandatory energy efficiency requirements to enter the Mexican market.
Meanwhile,there are a large number of manufacturers specializing in developing and producing LED light, lead lighting is one of them,Lead lighting has been continuing to strengthen the use of certified raw materials such as  LED chips, LED drivers, heat sinks, shell, etc., and improve R & D and production team, striving to adopt the best materials and technology to produce best quality LED flood light, LED tunnel light, LED tube light and other indoor and outdoor lighting, using highly integrated high-brightness COB as the light source of the  LED Flood light and LED tunnel light and other outdoor lighting,adopting high brightness SMD LED as the light source of the LED tube light, the low-voltage constant current driver ensure the alternating current can be convert into direct current so that improve the energy use and reduces the stroboscopic effect stimulating the human eye, fully guarantee octahedron illuminated area of LED flood lights and bright light to adapt to outdoor open environment ,the soft and bright light of the LED tunnel light and LED tube light makes us safe driving in tunnels and enjoy work and study.As an ISO 9001:2000-certified factory,the lead lighting can meet the strict standards of CE, RoHS, FCC certificate, these strict producing standards guarantee our products distribute smoothly both in domestic and international markets. visit http://www.ledclan.com to Learn more vivid and specific characteristics of the LED tube light or click www.lead-lighting.com for more detailed and professional features and uses of the LED lighting.

What’s the application of mandatory certification requirements of the LED light on the EU market

1, the EU market

The EU is key exported markets of China’s LED lighting products. With LED lighting products entering the EU market, its mandatory requirements should be the mainly considered: Low Voltage Directive and the safety requirements its harmonized standards prescribes, electromagnetic compatibility directives and the electromagnetic compatibility requirements the harmonized standards prescribes, the environmental requirements in RoHS & WEEE directive and the energy efficiency requirements the ErP directive specifies. In addition, the semiconductor lighting products need to comply with conformity assessment procedures the relevant laws and regulations prescribes. Only then the CE mark can be affixed to successfully enter the EU market.

Wherein the following main aspects for the safety requirements of the semiconductor lighting the products entering the Europe needs to comply with:

For the safety of LED modules: should meet the safety requirements of EN62031, LED module connector must meet the corresponding requirements of EN60838-2-2; for the electronic control device of the LED lighting devices: should meet the corresponding safety requirements of the EN61347-1 and EN61347-2-13;

For the device optical radiation safety: shall conform to the corresponding requirements of the EN62471;

For the self-ballasted LED lights: they should meet the relevant requirements of EN60968;

For LED lamps: they should meet corresponding fixture standard safety requirements of the EN60598-1 and EN60598-2 series.

EMF requirements, but also meet the evaluation criteria EN62493 requirements related to that human exposure to electromagnetic fields of lighting equipment.

In addition, LED lighting products must comply with EU EMC Directive (2004/108/EC) requirements, compared with the same general lighting, LED lighting products for the EU EMC requirements are divided into electromagnetic disturbance, immunity, harmonic current and voltage fluctuations four aspects. As far as the environment is concerned, the related regulations of EU and the LED lamps are mainly ” Restrictions on the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment ” (RoHS, 2002/95/EC) and the “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive” (WEEE, 2002/96/EC)published in 2003, which were provided for hazardous substances and waste products recycling requirements.

EU for the energy efficiency requirements of the LED lighting products, are primarily reflected in the ” Framework Directive of developing energy-related products ecodesign requirements ” (referred to ErP Directive), currently for the LED lighting products, the energy efficiency requirements of non-directional LED general lighting products should in accordance with the requirements of the (EU) No244/2009 of ErP Directive Implementation Regulation, other performance requirements refer to the requirements of the implementation regulations (EU) No1194/2012. The energy efficiency requirements and performance requirements of the directional LED lamp shall be in accordance with the requirements of the implementing regulations (EU) No1194/2012. In addition, LED lighting products should meet the appropriate energy efficiency labeling requirements. (EU) No874/2012 regulations is the implementation for new energy efficiency label Framework Directive 2010/30/EU on the lamp and the fix, which suitable for incandescent, fluorescent, high intensity discharge lamps, LED lamps and LED modules, but also for those operating such lamps and fixtures available to the end consumer (also integrated into other products, including lamps) proposed labeling requirements. Regulations make clear the responsibility the suppliers, dealers should bear for the efficiency labels and product information, the regulations will be put into effect September 1, 2013, the existing energy efficiency labeling Directive of the home electricity source 98/11/EC will also be abolished on  1 September. 2013
