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 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, 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:
|Product name||CNCA-Rule||GB Standard|
|Seat belt||CNCA-02C-026||GB 14166|
|Safety glass products||CNCA-02C-028||GB 9656|
|Front position lamp/ rear position lamp, parking lamp, outline marker lamp, braking lamp||CNCA-02C-058|
|Front fog lamp, rear fog lamp||CNCA-02C-058|
|Rear license-plate light||CNCA-02C-058|
|Retro reflector||CNCA-02C-056||GB 11564
|Seat and head restraints||CNCA-02C-063||GB 15083
|Brake hose||CNCA-02C-057||GB 16897|
|Rear-view mirror||CNCA-02C-059||GB 15084|
|Fuel tank||CNCA-02C-062||GB 18296|
|Interior trimming material: floor covering, seat shield, decorating scale boards (inside door shield/panel, front wall inner shield, side wall inner shield, rear wall inner shield, roof liner)||CNCA-02C-060||GB 8410|
|Door lock and door hinge||CNCA-02C-061||GB 15086|
We would like to also point out examples of exceptions to the certification requirement such as:
- Warning triangle
- Aluminum rims (presumably CCC relevant in 2013)
- Interior lighting
- Warning lights in the doors
- Aluminum door sills
- Removable floor mats
- Non-visible parts behind the columns and door/ side panels
- Window frames
- Interior trimming products in the trunk are not relevant for CCC if the trunk is not connected to the passenger area
Especially for manufacturers of interior parts, specifying CCC requirements is not always easy, since the 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.
