The purpose of the Electrical Appliance and Material Safety Law (DENAN Law) is to prevent hazards and disturbances resulting from electrical appliances in Japan.

Regulations

All persons engaged in manufacturing or importing electrical appliances in Japan shall notify the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) when starting their business to become a notifying supplier.

Regulated electrical products are specified in two lists of specified electrical appliances and materials for Category A (115 items) and Category B (338 items). Products not shown in Category A and B lists are outside the scope of DENAN law and need to comply with other Japanese regulations.

For imported electrical appliances, it is the importers which have the obligation to secure the conformity of electrical appliances to the mandatory technical requirements, and which have the right to attach the PSE marks including the name of the importer, once their conformity to the mandatory technical requirements is confirmed. Importers resident in Japan are responsible for electrical products.
