Hello. It is a hori of the manager.

When you make an inquiry about PSE, together with the PSE exam itself, it is always possible to ask questions,

It is about PSE voluntary inspection.

Who does the voluntary inspection? Can you do that for you? Is it included in pse inspection costs?

As we are asked quickly, our answer is

Voluntary inspections are basically carried out by the production plant after production We do not act on behalf of voluntary inspections (not possible) Voluntary inspections are not included in pse inspection costs

It means.

However, what is "voluntary inspection" in the first place?
It seems to have such a doubt.

If I don't do this, can I apply for PSE? Will it be subject to the ministry's punishment?

To be clear, the people of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry can only say the answer which is decided in the system.
In addition, to some extent, it is also true that if the questioner does not have knowledge, the story does not mesh.

In this way, first of all, we will briefly outline the "voluntary inspection",
I hope you will learn.

I hope that you will know the actual situation of the system and take appropriate actions that can be used in real business without having to be impatient at all.

Voluntary inspections described in Article 8, Paragraph 2 of the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Act (PSE)

The text describes it this way:

Chapter III Conformity Inspection, etc. of Electrical Appliances and Materials

(Obligation to Conformance to Standards, etc.)

2. The notified business operator shall, pursuant to the provisions of an Ordinance of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, produce or import electrical appliances and equipment set forth in the preceding paragraph pertaining to its manufacture or import (excluding those manufactured or imported pursuant to the provisions of the proviso to the same paragraph) Inspections shall be performed, the inspection records shall be created, and they shall be saved.

As far as this part is concerned, it is not clear who will do what.
This part will be checked many times when you consult with the customer.

In practice, we are not in a position to respond to consultations, so we will first urge you to check with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.

And then

"I've heard that, but I'm not sure."

The majority of the answers are.
From the standpoint of an official, this is not possible to explain carefully for the position of the business operator, and it does not tell us what is necessary ahead of time.

In other words, if you do not have some knowledge in the position of asking questions, you will not really get the answer you want, but people who inquire for the first time are asking questions because they do not have such knowledge. There is a dignified tour here, and only time passes.

About a little more concrete voluntary inspection on the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry page

On the other hand, if you look at the page of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry on PSE voluntary inspections, the contents are summarized in this way.

Voluntary inspection

When a notified business operator manufactures or imports electrical appliances and materials, it is necessary to perform inspections according to the inspection method prescribed by the government, prepare inspection records, and store them for 3 years from the date of inspection.

The inspection method is specified by ministerial ordinances for electrical appliances and appliances other than specified electrical appliances.

Add the following contents to this and keep it as an inspection record.
・ Overview of classification and structure, material and performance of electrical appliances and equipment names and types

・ Date and place of inspection

Name of the person who carried out the inspection

– Quantity of electrical appliances and supplies inspected

Method of inspection

Results of the inspection

Citation: Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry homepage_Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Act_Flow of notifications and procedures_Voluntary inspection

 

Let's remember only here Important points about the contents of the voluntary inspection!

Voluntary inspections are basically conducted by the factory.

Who conducts voluntary inspections after product production? The answer to the question is that the factory basically does the voluntary inspection. The reason is that if a company that does not have production facilities does it, it is necessary to start from the place where the equipment is arranged.

It is an inefficient story to inspect what the factory produces elsewhere.

Is the voluntary inspection a 100%? Is it a removal inspection?

Pse voluntary inspections are required to be 100% inspections.

Do I need a sample recording form?

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry believes that one piece of head paper is sufficient for the records that importers should keep. However, the inspection records themselves should be stored in the factory.

Is there a format for recording paper?

There is no special format specified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. If the required inspection contents are included, the format is fine.

Is the contents of the voluntary inspection unique to PSE?

Basically, there is little special thing to do with pse self-inspection. Not only PSE (Japan) but also the minimum post-production inspection required for shipment anywhere in the world. In a word, it is a story of keeping the content which should be done originally anywhere if it is a decent factory as a voluntary inspection report of PSE.

 

Many people misunderstand!? Self-inspection is not required at the time of business notification

This is also a story often asked.

When do I submit my voluntary inspection report?

To answer first,

"Basically, we don't submit it, so you don't need a voluntary inspection report when you report your business."

Leave it as good or bad as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) will embark on an investigation of pse in Japan if there is any problem with the products on the market.

So, strangely, in law,

2. The notified business operator shall, pursuant to the provisions of an Ordinance of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, produce or import electrical appliances and equipment set forth in the preceding paragraph pertaining to its manufacture or import (excluding those manufactured or imported pursuant to the provisions of the proviso to the same paragraph) Inspections shall be performed, the inspection records shall be created, and they shall be saved.

However, it is written that disclosure is required by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry when there is an accident, etc., or when it becomes an investigation subject by regulations after distribution. By the way, those who consulted with our company under the regulation after distribution were not required to disclose the voluntary inspection report.

In other words, from the standpoint of people who know the actual situation, I sometimes personally feel that there is no need to have [a voluntary inspection report].

However, in recent years, the social eye has become severe due to the fraud problem related to the inspection of railway-related products that have continued for more than 35 years of Mitsubishi Electric, and many people think that it is still necessary to properly implement product safety measures.

Of course, we think so, but if we should properly grasp the system design of PSE in the first place, and if you do not know anything and say "voluntary inspection, voluntary inspection", I think that it is not good as a business.

As a matter of fact, will production plants in China (overseas) conduct voluntary inspections?

We often ask us if they will act as a substitute for voluntary inspections, but basically we do not perform voluntary inspections on our behalf.

As for the reason, as I mentioned a little earlier, the factory should perform voluntary inspections by itself, and the most efficient is that factories with facilities related to the product do it.

Instead of doing voluntary inspections because there is a voluntary inspection of PSE, it is a good thing to conduct voluntary inspections (pre-shipment inspections) as a professional ethics of the factory in the first place. And, there is no thing that is originally difficult for the voluntary inspection items of PSE, and only basic inspections.

However, it may be difficult to convince the factory to think about the format of the report, and we may provide a format for voluntary inspection reports as an option for PSE testing according to the customer's request.

It is also true that there are still a lot of factories which do not want to inspect it though it becomes a conclusion that the factory should do in principle theory. What should I do if I do that? It is asked, but it becomes a problem of the arrangement between the business operator and the factory.

By paying inspection costs in addition to the production price, will you have them prepare their own inspection reports? Or, do you persistently ask and get them to do something?

We also accept consultations about negotiations with such factories, so if you have any problems, please contact us.
