Main countries’ requirements for importing LED

Different countries demands different standards for importing LED products. It is significant to know laws to export LED products sucessfully .


After earthquake in Japan, the needs of energy-saving products are increasing , but mainly are monopolied by local market . For now there are no fresh standard of LED, mainly LED’s standard are still according to old law released by the goverment like <Electrical Application and Material Control Law>.

Of course Japan accepts CE approval. Though Japan does not have strict rules for LED industry, great mass of LED suppliers apply for PSE approval to certify the qualify of products as the high reception from the clients .


EU has highly hard demand for importing LED products. CE marking is the basic entry requirements for importing LED products, it includes ErP, RoHs and WEEE directives. In EU, LED light source must reach EN62471 standard’ requirement to be sure there will be not risk for users’ eyes and skins.

And Germany’s GS authentication is also not forcible , but its universally accepted by European Union. If LED wholesale has not bad quality products and wants to enter German market, apply for GS approval is a not bad choice.

United states:

Except UL approval, United states has the most advanced test standard which provides LED suppliers a bigger growth platform. Along with the disabling of mercury and filament lamp, United states’ test basically considers 3 aspects . First is safety; another is FCC; third is optical property.

UL is not the only one safety approval, there are some other like ETL. While , most LED companies choose UL even though it requires big money. Because of the high recognition.
