Proposal for Amendment to the Legal Inspection Requirements for Electric Cookers (6 page(s), in English; 4 page(s), in Chinese)
Date of arrival: 2019 February 20 - Final date for comments: 2019 April 21
DescriptionElectric 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, for 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).
