The KC mark ensures that the readers can now be used by government agencies, enterprises and private users.

“Korea’s rapid adoption of smart card-based technologies for telecommunications, banking and payments, transportation and corporate ID makes it an attractive growth opportunity for SCM, and certification of our readers is an important step to penetrating this key Asian market,” said Dr. Manfred Mueller, chief executive officer of SCM Microsystems. “This initial certification brings value to our customers in Korea as it allows them to leverage proven SCM technologies to quickly build and certify their own market solutions. As part of our global certification program we will continue to pursue certifications for additional product families in the coming months.”

About the KC mark

The KC labeling is comparable to the CE and FCC marking and declaration of conformity standards in many countries. These designations certify that each product meets the applicable regulations for quality and safety in each country and has been tested according to prescribed conformity assessment procedures. The KC mark was launched by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) and is valid for all radio communications equipment. For the testing procedure SCM utilized a testing laboratory accredited by the Korean Radio Research Agency (RRA).
