The Voluntary Control Council for Interference by Information Technology Equipment (VCCI) of Japan is no longer accepting registration applications for equipment compliant with V-2 Rules (CISPR 22).
As of April 1, 2019, only registration applications in compliance with VCCI 32-1 (CISPR 32) is accepted; concurrent acceptance of Rules V-2 and VCCI 32-1 (CISPR 32) has ended.
Below is the timeline for the transition:
|Until October 31, 2016||November 1, 2016 - March 29, 2019||After April 1, 2019|
|Compliance with: ||Compliance with: ||Compliance with: |
For products registered according to Rules V-2, see the following flowchart:
① If a product has been registered according to V-2 Rules before March 29, 2019 and has no change in registration contents/information it can be shipped without re-testing, even after April 2019.
② Products registered according to V-2 Rules can be re-registered according to VCCI 32-1 Rules without re-testing even if the product’s content has changed, if the change does not affect the submitted conformity verification test data and no new measurement items apply.
Examples of case ② include:
③ ④ ⑤ If the change affects conformity verification test data or that must comply with new test items, both re-testing per VCCI 32-1 Rules and a new registration application is required.
Examples of case ③ include:
Examples of case ④ include:
All other cases involving changes to the product, conformity verification test data, or requiring new measurement items fall into case ⑤ and require testing per the technical requirements of VCCI-CISPR 32 as well as re-registration according to VCCI 32-1 Rules.
