Smart home technology isn’t exactly a new concept; it is, in fact, more of a culmination of big dreams and years of research and development. Today, what once seemed like something out of a science fiction movie has transpired into one of the world’s fastest-growing industries that is expected to be worth $53.45 billion by 2022.
New sections of EN50121, which target apparatus have been listed in the Official Journal of the European Union. The additions mean that apparatus which has been tested to the previous 2006 version will cease to conform from 30th November 2018.
EN55035:2017, the long-awaited replacement for EN55024, EN55103-2 and EN55020, was released in the Official Journal ( OJ) last month.
Like EN55032, it is function-based and written around that rather than being product specific. We have had the Korean version, KN35, on our UKAS schedule since January 2016. Korea adopted the 2015 version of CISPR35. Having had nearly two years’ experience of KN35 testing, this has allowed us to quickly gain accreditation for the latest requirement for EN55035 and add it to our UKAS scope.

Despite the global market for light emitting diodes (LED) dropping 8% in 2016, a new article from Electronics Sourcing has revealed that robust demand will drive the industry, where revenue will total $17.8 billion by 2021. The research, conducted by IC Insights, has found that price erosion was the biggest contributor to the market falling for the first time in 15 years.
In recent months, the team at Eurofins Hursley have received a number of enquiries from clients asking about South Korean approvals and labelling requirements. Specs and certification can be hard to keep up with, so here’s a short round-up of changes you may not be aware of.
