How to have G-Mark for automatic hygiene products:
There are two ways of having bathroom products G Mark certified.
1. Low Voltage Product: Self-declaration conformity assessment
If the product consumes low voltage, such as auto soap dispenser or auto faucet, a self-declaration conformity can be acceptable as long as the products are manufactured and assembled in a controlled manner. For example, Hokwang is ISO 9001:2015 certified factory, and we have strict control over quality of each touchless soap dispenser, auto faucet and other products. Hence, our products with low voltage can be imported by a submission of a self-declaration conformity and other requested documents.
2. High Voltage Products or those in the area of IEC 60335 (Home Appliances): Notified Body (NB) needs to be involved
If the product consumes higher voltage, such as hand dryers that uses 120V or 240V power, a sample needs to be submitted and tested by a certified laboratory. Other than this, documents, including a risk analysis or assessment report and test reports for each products, are also required. Hokwang, being an experienced manufacturer of hand dryer, is capable of obtaining G Mark even under the strictest tests.
