Change of the marking for KC certification after revision of the legal text.

In July 2019, a draft revision of the “Regulation for Motor Vehicle & Vehicle Parts Certification and Investigation” was published, which contains fundamental changes to the KC certification for South Korea.
This draft came into force on 21.08.2019.

It contains six changes that affect the entire KC marking-relevant product portfolio (safety glass, safety belt, rims, headlamps, brake hoses, brake linings, reflectors, warning triangles).
One of the main changes is the color matching of the KC logo.

Overview of fundamental changes to the KC logo design

In addition to formal changes, the revision that has come into force also includes announcements by the test institutes that self-certification has been integrated.
In addition, the documentation was implemented both for special traction vehicles and the obligation for the manufacturer to demonstrate fuel economy in the production of vehicles.

The most important change is the KC logo. This logo is to be applied in gold. However, if it is necessary to distinguish it from the background, silver, navy blue, black and white are also permitted.
