Customer procedure for importing ITE and Medical power supplies/AC adaptors to Japan

The Japan PSE Law and its regulations specify mandatory electrical safety and EMI requirements for electrical products sold in Japan. Products with a history of accidents in the marketplace, or products which are likely to cause injury, are termed “Specified Electrical Products” and require third-party assessment by a METI-Registered Conformity Assessment Body (Registered CAB). Specified Electrical Products must display the diamond PSE mark. Power supplies and AC Adapters are “Specified electrical products” and must have a PSE mark.

An overview of the regulation is available online: https://www.meti.go.jp/policy/consumer/seian/denan/file/06_guide/denan_guide_ver3_en.pdf
