CHILE: Update on Battery Certification Requirements

May 15, 2023 | Chile

Chile Regulatory Compliance Update on Battery Certification Requirements:
Effective March 31, 2024, it will be mandatory for electric battery chargers intended for domestic use to undergo a certification process. This will apply to battery chargers up to 24V DC and 50 VA, used in children’s toys, electric cycles, and batteries up to 9V DC. The scope applies to chargers sold on their own, as accessories or replacements, or sold/shipped packaged together with toys, electric cycles, or batteries.

There are several exceptions to types of batteries where the scope of certification does not apply, such as chargers incorporated within products, those batteries that are non-accessible, and many more, so make sure to reach out to Testing Partners for that list of exceptions.

The testing protocol consists of multiple safety tests and marking requirements. For more information about this upcoming requirement and how this impacts your battery heading into the Chilean marketplace, contact Testing Partners today.
