Business in the Republic of Korea’s market represents a great opportunity for international companies. However, the complicated regulations and strict monitoring by the national authorities often have often deterred many foreign manufacturers from entering.
Many product categories require a valid certification where tests according to Korean national regulations are required to show compliance to Korean standards and regulations. Existing certifications according to international standards are almost never accepted for the product certification.
Product certifications in South Korea require proper preparation application and supporting documentation, independent tracking of regulatory changes, and proven process for change management.
Regulations, regulatory changes and general information provided by the Korean authorities is usually only published in the Korean language. Violations of the regulations, intended or unintended, are strictly penalized by the local authorities and may lead to the loss of certifications or even a product ban.
