I have a question about antecedent "that" and "which" I. An electric razor that meets the European Union's safety standards must be approved by American testers. 2. As it happens, a razor that is safe is unlikely to electrocute Americans. 3. American and the EU have been trying to reach a deal which would eliminate the need to double-test. My question is that can we use "which" to replace "that" in the first two sentences and to change " that" to "which" in the last sentence?

Grammatically, yes. But it is not good writing to use "which" for non-parenthetical phrases. Therefore, the third sentence is poor.
