    Origin of charger certification

    Society is constantly moving forward, and comes into being with the industrialization and standardization of production. From the beginning of the 20th century to the 1970s, the certification activities in various countries were mainly based on product certification. In 1903, the firstly certified of rails based on national standards and engraved kite marks on the rails in United Kingdom, creating a precedent for the establishment of a national certification system in the world, and began to carry out normative activities for certification work under the leadership of the government.

    With the changes of the times, product certification has become an internationally accepted effective means for evaluation, supervision and management of product safety, quality, environmental protection and other characteristics.

    At present, there are many kinds of phone charger in the market. How to choose a high-quality chargers suitable for customers, safety certification is particularly important. Generally speaking, the charger with more certification that mean it’s with higher the reliability quality. Therefore, we try to choose this type of charger when to purchase. Type certification of chargers (such as CCC, UL, ETL, FCC, CE, RoHS, KC, SAA, PSE, etc.). Note the difference: Accreditation refers to the formal recognition by an authoritative body of the ability of an institution or person to perform a specific task.

    CCC & CQC

    Country used: China

    China’s charger certification system is divided into mandatory CCC and voluntary CQC. The CCC mark is derived from the first letter of the English word “China Compulsory Certification” and the CQC mark is derived from the first letter of the English word “China Quality Certification”. CCC certification is “China’s national compulsory product certification. There have two versions of CCC certificates now: CCC (S) and CCC (S & E), CCC (S) only means that the safety standard has passed. CQC mark is China’s quality certification. One of the voluntary product certification businesses carried out by the center, by applying the CQC mark, indicates that the product meets the relevant quality, safety, performance, electromagnetic compatibility and other certification requirements. CQC is a voluntary product certification that is not compulsory in China.

    The FCC is a certification regarding electromagnetic interference. The charger will generate strong electromagnetic interference when it is working. If not shielded, it may affect the monitor, motherboard and other electrical equipment, and even bring harm to the human body. Therefore, there are strict regulations on electromagnetic interference in the world. There are two general standards: FCC-A industrial standard and FCC-B civil standard. Only chargers that meet the latter are safe and harmless.

    *Warm tip: Nordic four countries certification

    NORIC means that the certification bodies of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark have reached an agreement to recognize each other. As long as the manufacturer’s product obtains the certification certificate of any of the four Nordic countries, the manufacturer can easily obtain the certification without further certification. Certificates from the other three countries. The certification bodies of the four countries refer to NEMKO (Norwegian Electrical Equipment Standards Association), SEMKO (Swedish Electrical Equipment Standards Association), DEMKO Association) and FIMKO (Finnish Electrical Equipment Standards Association) certification. Among them, the NEMKO logo means that the product has passed the Norwegian certification test to ensure that the product can withstand physical wear, combustion and electronic shock. The NEMKO logo is valid for 10 years after evaluation, after new testing. Having the SEMKO logo indicates that the product is in compliance with European standards.

    8 modes of charger certification

    The charger certification system originated in the United Kingdom in the early 20th century. With the changes of the times, it has become an internationally accepted effective method for product safety, quality, environmental protection and other characteristics evaluation, supervision and management. The book “Principles and Practices of Certification” published by the International Standards Organization summarizes the internationally accepted certification models into 8 models.


    There are 8 model of internationally accepted authentication, here you can see as follows:

    • TYPE TEST. Test the sample according to the prescribed method to prove whether the sample meets all the requirements of the standard or technical specification;
    • TYPE TEST + Post-Certification Supervision (Market Sampling Inspection). This is a certification system with supervision measures. The method of supervision is to buy samples from the market or randomly sample from the warehouses of wholesalers and retailers for inspection to prove that the quality of the certified products continues to meet the requirements of the certification standards;
    • TYPE TEST + Post-Certification Supervision (Factory Sampling Inspection). This certification system is similar to the ②, except that the method of supervision is different. It is not sampled from the market, but randomly sampled from the products before factory for inspection;
    • TYPE TEST + Post-Certification Supervision (Market And Factory Sampling Inspection). This certification system is a combination of ② and ③;
    • TYPE TEST + Factory Quality System Assessment + Post-Certification Supervision ( Quality System Review + Market or Factory Sampling Inspection). The notable feature of this certification system is that the inspection and evaluation of the quality system for manufacturer has been added to the conditions for approval and certification, the review of the quality system for manufacturer has also been added to the supervision measures after the approval and certification;
    • Factory Quality System Assessment + Quality System Review After Certification. This certification system is to check and evaluate the quality system of the products produced by the manufacturer in accordance with the required technical specifications, often referred to as quality system certification;
    • Batch Inspection. According to the specified sampling plan, conduct sampling inspection on a batch of products, and judge whether the batch of products meets the requirements of certification standards based on this;
    • 100% Inspection. Each product must be inspected according to the standard and approved by an independent inspection agency before leaving the factory.
