The electrical supplies are divided into “specific electrical supplies” and “non-specific electrical supplies”. “Specific electrical supplies” contains 116 products; “Non-specific Electrical Products” includes 341 products,technical requirements include EMC and safety.
The former nameplate affixed with diamond PSE logo, the latter nameplate affixed with circular PSE logo, PSE certification fees are different for different categories of products.
