GB Standards

The GB Standard (GB stands for Guobiao, or “National Standard”) is the basis for testing products that require certification. Therefore, if there is no corresponding GB Standard for a product, CCC is not required.

The car itself is subject to certification, as are numerous individual automotive components. Certifying the individual components according to the CNCA automotive regulations is the preferred solution; otherwise, service parts imported into China may be detained by Chinese customs. The vehicle manufacturer may be permitted a certain range of parts included in the overall vehicle certification, but this can lead to complications if changes are made to the components or the suppliers. In addition, according to the relevant CNCA automotive norms, these components cannot be marked with the CCC mark.

For complete certification implementation and to ensure a smooth flow for supplying service parts, it is recommended, if not mandatory, to certify the following automotive products according to the relevant CNCA regulations.

We would like to also point out examples of exceptions to the certification requirement such as:

  1. Aluminum rims
  2. Interior lighting
  3. Warning lights in the doors
  4. Aluminum door sills

Especially for manufacturers of interior parts, specifying CCC requirements is not always easy, since the CNCA Implemenation Rules are complex and not clearly communicated. With numerous successfully completed certifications specifically in this area, we can provide very valuable support if your company needs a CCC mark for interior parts.
