Hello. It is a hori of the manager.

There are a lot of sober questions that I'm doing authentication work,

How should PSE notify and apply to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry?

It is a content that.

Citation: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry website "Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law _ Flow of Notification and Procedures"


It is PSE flow that has appeared many times, but this time I would like to summarize the questions of "business notification".

Please note that this time it is a form of answering questions to the last, and it does not cover all the flow of PSE application. However, if you read the contents of this time, I think that you can grasp the flow roughly.

Before entering the main subject, if you tell us the background of many questions about the PSE application procedure, there seems to be a fear that the business operator is the first time to apply for PSE, and that if there is a document incompleteness, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will be able to pay attention.

In addition, if the Chinese factory appeals to "I have obtained PSE!" and submits the certificate presented to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as it is, it seems that there is a concern that some kind of suspicion will be raised because it is a summer insect that flies and is on fire.

Basically, it is better to think that there is some deficiency in the PSE certification acquired by the Chinese factory by itself.

In other words, I personally feel that it is a little difficult to understand because the pages of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry themselves are written in a formical way rather than practical.

In addition, since the radio law of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications does not require the business operator himself to apply to the ministry, the application to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry may be a little high from the viewpoint of a certification beginner.

Anyway, as a matter of feelings, if you feel that it is a high hurdle to contact the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry from the beginning, please study on this page, get some preliminary knowledge, and then contact and communicate.

Is it ok for the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to submit PSE documents? Also, when do you submit a business notification?

Strictly speaking, it is not the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry: Kasumigaseki) that submits business notifications such as PSE and PSC, but the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry in each area jurisdiction. Will be. Of course, I think that the station has various functions, but from our point of view, it is an image like a document application and reception agency for work related to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

This is divided into areas, for example, the Kanto Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry if the business operator is Tokyo, the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry if it is Osaka, and the Kyushu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry if it is Fukuoka.

So, please contact your local Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry when submitting PSE documents. I think that it comes out soon if you search on the net.


Citation: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry_Notification and Inquiry Desk

Since we are a business operator in Kanagawa Prefecture, we will tell you about the following stories on the assumption that you are using the Kanto Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.

In addition, although it is time to submit a business notification, it is supposed to be put out before "confirmation of standard compliance" in the table above, but I think that it is rather severe physically as a reality. The reason will be described later.

The Economic and Industrial Pages

In the manufacture and import business of electrical appliances, the necessary matters must be notified to the competent Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry within 30 days from the date of commencement of the business.
Citation: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry_Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Act_Flow of Notifications and Procedures

It is written.

On the other hand,

The date of commencement of business refers to the date on which electrical appliances and materials were specifically manufactured (completed) or imported (transferred to Japan), but includes preparation for business and some decision-making days in-house, etc. related to business start.)
Quoted

Because there is a atmosphere that must be submitted as soon as possible, as mentioned earlier, it is quite severe physically, so it may be just right to match the date on which the PSE certificate was issued. In addition, since this is our personal opinion to the last, I think that you can judge it by each company in the end.

Still, the thing that you should not do most is to sell (forget) without applying. For example, even if you apply in a hurry after about 60 days of sales, the date can only be traced back to 30 days.

If you are not good at it, you may be thrust in by the person in charge of the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry on the spot you submitted, and if there is a discrepancy between the social record that you are starting to sell and the document record (date), there may be an inquiry from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in the course of time.

Be careful about that area.

I plan to have PSE products produced at my factory in China, do I need to report my importer?

As a point in the first place, the notification of PSE is divided into importer notification and manufacturer notification.

As long as you produce overseas, you will need to report all importers. In addition, when manufacturing in Japan, a manufacturer's notification is required.

The following formats are covered.

Example manufacturing business (PDF format: 176KB) Import business (PDF format: 232KB) of business notification form (Word format: 24KB)

Citation: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry_Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Act_Flow of Notifications and Procedures_Business Notifications_Forms, etc.

 

What you need to be aware of here is that if you have PSE certified what is already produced by an overseas factory, if a Japanese business operator makes it at an overseas factory for PSE, you will need an importer report in both cases.

Since certification is granted to the production plant, it means importing products subject to PSE certified production plants, and if pse funds are provided in-house as an importer, management to prevent the factory from selling to others without permission will also be required.

This story will be a different theme, so if you are interested, please contact us directly.

On the other hand, the manufacturer's notification is also submitted by the production plant in Japan, not the seller. In this case, there are many patterns in which the seller provides PSE funds, and the name of the PSE producer describes the factory, but there are many cases where the name is displayed separately as "seller".

I don't think there are many things that Japanese businesses in Japan do, but it is still necessary to have prior discussions with the sales company that provided funds so that the production plant does not sell to other companies without permission.

When I submit a notification, is it okay to copy the prescribed form and PSE certificate?

The above mentioned,

It is the timing to submit a business notification, but in the table above, it is supposed to be put out before "confirmation of compliance with standards", but it is better to do so in the system, but as a reality it is probably quite severe physically.

However, when filing a notification of the business operator of THE PSE, it is always required to submit a type classification together with the application form (submitted documents).

Electrical appliance and material classification

 

Type classification table (partial excerpt)

Citation: Ordinance for Enforcement of the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Act_Appended Table 1 Classification of Electrical Appliances and Materials (Article 2)/Appended Table 2 Type Classification (Article 4)

The electrical appliance and material classification is a classification of the corresponding electrical appliance and material, and it is considerably difficult for the amateur of electrical appliances to understand the model division though it understands somehow if it examines it a little.

In the first place, the product structure is different for each product, so even a person who is familiar with technology can not make a model classification unless you confirm it firmly after certification.

In other words, there is no type classification unless certification is completed, so business notification will not be possible.

From an old-fashioned point of view, Japanese manufacturers and factories have decided on the model classification and entered manufacturing, so it may be like the PSE flow at the beginning.

However, when producing at overseas factories or in recent Japan that do not know pse very well, it is becoming difficult to grasp the model classification from the beginning, as pse tsuji is often matched in the end.

Still, I think that there is no problem because you can finally understand the model classification, but the terrible thing is that when using an overseas inspection organization such as China, it is mostly issued only a certificate without making a model classification.

How do I apply for this when the customer consults me? It was not once that I tilted my head, but we did many of the model divisions on our behalf each time.

Again, the notification is a prescribed form, a copy of the PSE certificate (in some cases, no submission required) and a type classification. It is difficult to obtain this type classification unless the PSE inspection is completed, so I think that the PSE application to the BUREAU of Economy, Trade and Industry will fit enough after the completion of the inspection.

I'm not very used to applying for this kind of application, can I submit the downloaded form for the time being?

Basically, there is no problem, but be careful about two points.

The first time to submit is "Business Operator Notification" of "Form No. 1 (Article 3 Related)"

Whether you are an importer or a manufacturer, if it is the first electrical appliance and material category, you will submit a "Business Operator Notification" of "Form No. 1 (Article 3 Related)".

It is necessary to be careful to make mistakes easily, and do not submit "Business Notification Matters Change Notification Form" etc. of "Form No. 6 (Article 6 related)".

Form 6 will be submitted as "additional", for example, when dealing with a new product in an electrical appliance and material category that has already been submitted.

The form number can be found in the upper left corner of the document.

It is difficult to understand what is written in unfamiliar A4 documents, but the recipient (Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry) looks at the form number to determine what the applicant wants to do.

Previously, the customer who applied for the first time made a mistake, submitted it in Form 6 instead of Form 1, and the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry could not judge whether they had already applied even though they said it was the first application, and the customer panicked and the story fell into a parallel line.

When we finally confirmed that it was a different style, we found that the story was safe.

When downloading, be sure to check the form number carefully.

 

Don't ask anyone other than an administrative scrivener to prepare documents.

As mentioned above, the documents themselves are basically plain, and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has prepared examples of how to write carefully, so there is no problem if you write a little calmly.

However, some people still think that it is difficult to do it by themselves, so if you advise, you should not ask anyone other than an administrative scrivener when you ask others to prepare such official documents other than doing it yourself (in-house).

This is because there is a possibility that it will become a so-called substitute (violation of the Administrative Scrivener Act).

We have never written a letter of money. I will tell you where there is a style format, but the rest is an idle play that please look at the sample and create it yourself lol.

However, as I say many times, it is a very simple document, so unless there is a great thing, let's do it yourself (in-house).

When you submit a notification at a sole proprietor, you were told that the name of the business that displays the product must be your real name, but do you want to avoid this at all, but is there a remedy?

The ministry of economy, trade and industry page is written as follows.

The official name of the business operator (in the case of a sole proprietor, name) is displayed. However, if it is an abbreviated name that has been approved or a registered trademark that has been notified, it can be displayed even if it is not an official name.

In other words, if you apply for PSE on an individual (business owner), you must display your name (real name) on the product instead of the shop name. This is also true for PSC under the same METI jurisdiction.

In my case, "Hori Yuta" will be displayed on the product, so personally I thought that this was a shame until the end of the year and laughed, and this led the sole proprietor to graduate, establish a corporation, and display "INSIGHT WORKS Co., Ltd." on the product.

I personally feel that it is safe to avoid applying with a sole proprietor, but it is also true that there is a method of "If it is an abbreviated name approved or a registered trademark that has been notified, it can be displayed even if it is not an official name" in the above quote.

Of course, this applies to corporations, but for example, if it is abbreviated, "INSIGHT WORKS Co., Ltd." can be called "INSIGHT WORKS" or "Yamada Taro" can be "Yamada".

However, if it is a company name, the abbreviation is good, but only the last name and the name in the name may not be identified, but it is an honest impression that it is not a very pleasant thing.

By the way, the delivery of the abbreviation itself should be delivered to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Kasumigaseki, not the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry. After that, it will be reported to the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.

As for registered trademarks, trademarks can be displayed at the name of the business, so it is valid for sole proprietors, but it takes at least half a year or more to file a trademark application in the first place. And since trademark applications are likely to fall in the examination, the hurdles are also quite high.

If you wait for it, the PSE application will only be slower and slower, so it may be safe to stop except that you have a trademark from the beginning.

In addition, the notification of the trademark that the application has been completed is the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Kasumigaseki.

My personal point is that if you want to apply for a PSE, you should be a corporation.

Is there any good way to apply suddenly and make a mistake because it is troublesome in various ways?

First of all, there are three ways to apply: electronic application, bring it directly to the bureau of economy, trade and industry of the jurisdiction, and also mail to the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.

If you are a business operator who does not usually submit documents to government agencies, I think that there is no electronic application, so I will not discount that.

I will bring it with me and think by mail.

In any case, you will need two forms (the same one), a certificate and a copy of the model classification (one by one).

Certificates can be omitted if they are patterns that are listed together with the name and address of the production plant in the model classification. However, since it is not something to hide separately, let's think that the certificate and the model classification are basically a set.

One form is affixed by the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry and stored by the business operator, and the other is affixed.

To answer your question, contact your competent Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry, ask your e-mail address, etc., and have it corrected in advance.

Whether you bring it directly or by mail, if you submit it suddenly, the small part is usually wrong, and whether you take what you brought home once, or wait for the mail to return, it will be a significant time loss.

Be sure to have them correct in advance.
