Taiwan (BSMI), Proposal for Amendment to the Legal Inspection Requirements for Electric Cookers

Proposed date of implementation January 1, 2020

Electric Cookers have been subject to mandatory inspection under the Commodity Inspection Act by the Bureau of Standards Metrology and Inspection since 25 May 1972. To enhance consumer protection and promote efficiency of energy use, the BSMI proposes to adopt the latest version of standards for inspection. In addition to that, electric cookers with an inner pot to cook rice and a capacity less than 10L, compliance with Section 6.5 “Heat efficiency test” and Section 7 “Marking” of CNS 2518 (2016) is required.

The conformity assessment procedures remain the same, i.e. Registration of Products Certification (RPC) or Type-approved Batch Inspection (TABI).

Description of Goods Inspection Standards C.C.C. Code (the first 6 digits are the same as HS Code) (Reference)
Electric cookers (woks, slow cookers, electric bowls, deep fat fryers of volume not exceeding 5L, frying pans, cooking pans, and pressure cookers (rated cooking pressure not exceeding 140kPa and rated capacity not exceeding 10L), rated voltage not exceeding 250V) 1.       CNS 60335-1 (2014)

Taiwan (BSMI), Amendment to Legal Inspection Requirements of Electric Storage Tank Water Heaters and Air Conditioners with Hermetic Type Compressor

Proposed date of implementation July 1, 2020

BSMI has proposed to adopt the latest version of standards for the inspection of safety and electromagnetic compatibility features of electric storage tank water heaters and air conditioners with hermetic type compressor.

The followings are excluded from the scope:

  • Water heaters and air conditioners built in with a USB connection port with the main input voltage of 5V direct current (DC) but not attached cigar lighter power supply
  • Water heaters using only three-phase voltage supply
  • Water heaters and air conditioners powered only by dry cell batteries

The conformity assessment procedures remain the same, i.e. Registration of Products Certification (PRC) or Type-approved Batch Inspection (TABI).

Description of Goods Inspection Standards C.C.C. Code (the first 6 digits are the same as HS Code) (Reference) Conformity Assessment Procedures
Electric storage tank water heaters (Inspection scope: does not include solar water heaters, rated voltage not exceeding single-phase 250V AC) 1.       CNS 60335-1 (2014-11)
