CCC: Certification regulations for safety glass19. May 2014
The demand of the Chinese market for European and US made safety glass continues to grow. Many Chinese companies prefer to use European or US safety glass for manufacturing their products, due to quality differences. Because of this, the imports of foreign safety glass and related products into China showed considerable growth.
Most glass manufacturers do not possess the essential knowledge regarding CCC requirements for safety glass. Safety glass and related products must be certified prior to exporting them to China. The “Implementation Rule for Compulsory Certification of Safety Glass Products” and the GB Standard GB-9656 (GB stands for Guobiao, Chinese for “National Standard”) determine the certification requirements for safety glass and related products. The Implementation Rule defines the directive for complete certification and the GB Standard (9656) determines necessary product tests for obtaining a CCC certificate.
In case of safety glass those are:
1. Test for optical qualities
2. Test of resistance to chemicals
3. Burning-behaviour test
4. Fragmentation test
5. Mechanical strength test
6. Headform test
7. Test of resistance to the environment
8. Flexibility and fold test
