TÜV Rheinland has been granted accreditation by the Korea RRA to test and certify IT and multimedia equipment to the recently enacted KN32/KN35 standards. The official notification was received just before the KN32/KN35 standards became effective and replaced KN22/KN24 on January 1, 2016.
TÜV Rheinland is one of the first Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories to receive KN32/KN35 recognition. This recognition, from Korea’s National Radio Research Agency (RRA), applies to those products scheduled for testing after January 1 2016; products which already been tested and approved in 2015 under KN22/KN24 will not require additional testing.
The new KN32/KN35 standards have added new requirements regarding radiated immunity, conducted immunity and surge I/O (for outdoor cables). Any new audio, IT, and multimedia products bound for the Korean market will need to meet the new standards, as KN22, KN24, KN15 and KN20 will be invalid after December 31, 2015. However, products certified to the old standards will still be market eligible through 2017.
