System level WHCK waiver in case of no certification on specific component RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a questions regarding Waiver policy of WHCK.

    As far as I know, there are 2 types of WHCK certification: System level and Component level.

    I think that we need both certification to produce a system level product such like laptop.

    That is to say, certification for laptop itself and certification for each components such like SSD and components in the laptop.

    But, I have a question.

    In case that specific component does not have certification, is it possible to get an system level waiver?

    For example, we are a laptop manufacture but our component(let's say, SSD) could not get a component level certification for WHCK.

    In this case, can we get an system level waiver for WHCK wihout a component level certification of SSD?

    If possible, what should we do?

    It will be highly appreciated if you can help me to understand whole procedure.
