CCC: CCC for Welding Machines10. April 2015
In 2009 the Chinese certification authority CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) published the GB standard (GB15578-2008) on Safety Requirements for Resistance Welding Machines. This GB standard replaces the old GB standard (GB15578-1995). The GB15578-2008 is the most current GB standard for these types of products and included many new requirements, which were not required by the previous GB standard (i.e. safety requirements for wires, basic insulation requirements, power-on/off switch device etc.). Detailed requirements for operation manuals and nameplates on welding machines were also added to the new GB Standard.
CCC certification is required for welding machines and manufacturers will need to apply for CCC certification before the products can enter the Chinese market. It is important for manufacturers to understand and consider all of the current requirements of the applicable GB standard before submitting their application for CCC certification. Different requirements may apply to manufacturers of special machines. Please contact us for more details here via email.
In our “News” section we will also keep you informed about all of the latest announcements from the Chinese authorities. Please check our website regularly since these official announcements can be detrimental in maintaining product compliance, and are often made without any advanced notice.
