The Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law (DENAN Law or PSE Law) and Consumer Products Safety Law are of particular importance for access to Japan market.
There are many people who have questions such as “Does an importer like us have to comply with these laws too?”, “I heard that there are some electrical products that the DENAN Law is not applicable. How about our product?”
There are in total 457 regulated electrical products that the DENAN Law is applicable, of which 116 items are called specified electrical appliances and materials, and 341 products are called non-specified electrical appliances and materials (as of July 1, 2016) .
In fact, when your product is not included in the list of the regulated electrical products, your product is outside the scope of the DENAN Law, even if it is an electrical appliance or material.
Does it mean that you don’t have to do anything before shipping your product to Japan?
When your product is one of the specified electrical appliances, what should you do?
