03-03-23Greater China

On February 27, TÜV Rheinland Greater China, an international independent third-party testing, inspection, and certification organization, awarded ETSI EN 303 645 Consumer IoT Device Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection Standard Certificates for Hisense smart refrigerators and smart washing machines. This is the first ETSI EN 303 645 certification issued by TÜV Rheinland for smart refrigerators and smart washing machines in the world.

The certificate awarding ceremony was attended by representatives from both parties, including Catherine Fang, Executive Vice President of Hisense International, Frank Bao, Union Chairman of Hisense Home Appliances Group, Daikin Jin, Assistant Vice President of Hisense International and Deputy General Manager of Hisense Europe Region, Dr. Chen Weikang, Vice President of Business Stream Industrial Services & Cybersecurity at TÜV Rheinland Greater China and Senior Engineer, and Joan Yang, Vice General Manager of TÜV Rheinland Greater China Industrial Services & Cybersecurity.

Dr. Chen said, “TÜV Rheinland has been engaged in cooperation with Hisense in the field of cybersecurity and privacy protection since 2017. Today’s certificate awarding is another milestone in the cooperation between the two parties. It not only serves as a witness to our expanding cooperation from smart TVs to smart home appliances, but also highlights the importance that Hisense attaches to consumer privacy protection and its unremitting efforts in cybersecurity.”

In this project, TÜV Rheinland conducted a comprehensive evaluation of Hisense smart refrigerators and smart washing machines according to the cybersecurity regulations and privacy protection requirements of the ETSI EN 303 645 standard, utilizing overall design assessment and review, security-related verification, and other means.

The ETSI EN 303 645 standard, published in June 2020, was developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in collaboration with related product manufacturers, academia, and governments, seeking to propose a set of effective and basic security requirements to prevent cybercriminals from controlling IoT devices, launching DDoS attacks, mining cryptocurrency, or spying on users, thus lowering the risk of personal data leakage. The standard evaluates products from two aspects, namely, cybersecurity regulations and data privacy protection clauses, focusing on technical control measures and organizational measures to deal with cybersecurity vulnerabilities and defend against primary network attacks targeting cybersecurity weaknesses and loopholes.

During more than 20 years of cooperation, TÜV Rheinland has established a long-term and stable partnership with Hisense, providing Hisense with all-round support in ensuring product safety and quality, from electrical safety and energy efficiency to cybersecurity and privacy protection. The two parties will continue to deepen their cooperation in the future. Hisense, relying on TÜV Rheinland’s technical resources in the field of testing and certification and rich experience in cybersecurity, will reach ever higher quality standards and further enhance its competitiveness in the global market.
