IECEE-CB (IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components)Outline
The IECEE/CB Scheme is an international mutual recognition system that enables the safety of electrical and electronic products and coordination between national and international standards to obtain national certification without redundant testing. The IECEE/CB scheme allows various countries, safety standards, conformity marks, etc.
to be treated as a single test procedure.Applied Equipment
Electrical/electronic devices, information office equipment, batteries, lighting devices, instruments, switches, insulation transformers, parts and capacitors are designated as target items.Related Agency

CE (Communaut' Europeen)Outline
The CE mark means that it meets all the requirements of the European Standards for Product Safety, Health, Environment and Consumer Protection, i.e. EU Council Guidelines, and must be approved and affixed to products related to consumer safety distributed within the EU. The CE mark is not a guarantee of quality, but a means of confirmation that it meets basic safety conditions (required requirements) and can be freely distributed within the EU region.Applied Equipment
Low Voltage Directive (LVD) : Safety certification for AC 50V-1000V / DC 75V – 1500V applicable electrical equipment
Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMCD): Electromagnetic certification for all electronic equipment
Radio Equipment Directive (RED) : certification of wireless and communications equipment
RoHS: Almost all electrical and electronic devices, such as electrical appliances, medical equipment, monitoring and control equipment, based on restricted substances and maximum allowable concentration;
Other: Almost all products sold within the EU region (including automotive, toys, medical devices, machines, pressure vessels, etc.) should be certified according to their respective guidelines.Related Agency
ENEC (European Norms Electrical Certification)Outline
At the request of the European Society of Manufacturers of Safety Marks, ENEC agreed that European test certification centers would conduct a unified assessment of the safety requirements that electrical products must meet across Europe, resulting from ENEC.The ENEC mark is a conformity mark agreed upon by the European Community Member States for a significant proportion of all electrical technology products, which is a demonstration of compliance with specific European safety standards.
This certification focuses on LED lamp products.
Unlike CE, it is not compulsory certification, but in addition to CE basic certification, it is more advantageous to enter the market if ENEC certification is obtained. It is also a necessity in some industries.Applied Equipment

ERP (Energy Related Product)Outline
Mandatory environmental design for energy-related products and prohibition of entry into EU markets for products that do not meet eco-friendly design standards. The EUP guidelines incorporate the Directive on Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) on product design and the Directive on Energy Efficiency Requirements (EER) on energy efficiency improvement, aimed at minimizing energy use at all stages, from product design to production, transportation, packaging, etc.Applied Equipment
Products that rely on or use energy to create energy while using computers, TVs, light bulbs, batteries, and imaging devices, and that transmit or measure these energies, in principle, are targeted.Related Agency
