Taiwanese CNS 10917 – Taiwan standard – an overview
According to the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs, “The UL safety certification is not considered sufficient to meet Taiwan requirements for end product safety certification. Home appliances, certain fire fighting products, electrical power distribution devices (including cables and switches), lighting products for in-door use and motors require safety testing or inspection in Taiwan.” It is also worth noting that Taiwan, as the Republic of China on the island of Formosa, is completely separate from mainland or Peoples’ Republic of China: the 3 pin plugs are not interchangeable, and approvals bodies are different. Domestic voltage is 110V at 60 Hz for Taiwan, as opposed to 220V 50Hz in mainland China. Whilst very similar, Japan uses 100V 50/60Hz. In summary, Chinese-type plugs are not compatible, and whilst Japanese and some USA type plugs may be compatible, they are not approved.
