Internal Component Verification process for Blade System

Internal Components Verification process for Blade System

How can apply for KCC certificate for blade system
- written by Soo-Gil, Kim (sgkim@kc-mark.com / sgkim@ist.re.kr)

The Internal Components Verification is the inside process for KCC approval. 
This process can reduce the approval cost, and is applicable to the blade systems.

The below is the normal configuration of blade system.


Each blade may be a blade server, switch, controller or storage.
This case is a little different with the above-mentioned case of PC and MB. MB can not be operated without the chassis and other components, but these blades may operate alone or not.

The applicant can choose two ways.
If he wants to get each test report for each blade, he needs 13 tests and 13 certificates for one enclosure and 12 blades.
But if he doesn’t need to get each reports, he can get 1 report, and 13 certificates from one test. This is the merit of Internal Components Verification process.
Actually the test fee under this process is a little more expensive, but the whole approval fee is very cheap than the first process.

When we follow this process, what is difference concerning on the required docs?
The required docs are same which way we follow. The only one different thing is the test report. Because the blade system is out of the scope of KC (electric safety), KCC mark is only compulsory mark for Korea market.
The required docs for KCC (EMC registration) are,
- Local Representative Letter (if the applicant is a foreigner)
- Modification Letter (if it is needed to add the series model name or various manufacturers)
- System Block Diagram
- User’s Manual (both Korean and English)
