CCC: Frequent problems with exporting small-power motors27. May 2014
Frequently problems occur during exports of small-power motors to China. Many exporters and manufacturers of motors are unaware of the required regulations and face serious issues during the customs clearance process. Without an official CCC marking labeled or molded on to the product, these goods cannot not be processed through Chinese customs. To determine if your product requires CCC you can either check our Mandatory Product Catalogue or you can contact us for a free CCC-Check.
Certification requirements for small-power motors
Small-power motors must be certified in compliance with GB Standard GB12350-2000 “Safety requirements for small-power motors” and/ or GB 14711-2006 “(General) Requirements for Safety of Small and Medium Size Rotating Electrical Machines” and the respective Implementation Rules. The Implementation Rule defines the directive for complete certification and the GB Standard (GB stands for Guobiao, Chinese for “National Standard”) determines necessary product tests for obtaining a CCC certificate.
Generally, motors of same type, use and manufacturer can tested and certified as one unit. However, for products from the same manufacturer, but from different manufacturing sites, application, tests and certifications must be done separately.
Unless otherwise stated, the following amount of tests samples have to be sent to the proper authority for testing:
- Industrial use motors – one product sample
- Household use motors – two product samples
The following key components and materials are tested within the appliance:
- AC motor capacitor
- Thermal protector
- Lead wire
- Thermal link
- Electrolytic capacitor
- Centrifugal starting switch
- Non-metallic materials
