CCC: GB 4706.15-2008 Becomes Compulsory for Pet Hair Dryers in 2017

2. August 2016
According to the CNCA Announcement No. 17 from July 18, 2016 certification authorities and manufacturers have agreed on certification of hair dryers for pets to protect the interests of consumers and manufacturers of these electrical devices.

Hair dryers used for quickly drying the hair of pets such as dogs and cats become part of the product catalog for the CCC certification of household and similar devices for skin and hair care. As of January 1, 2017 these hair dryers must be certified in accordance to GB 4706.15-2008 “Household and Similar Devices for Skin and Hair Care – Particular Requirements”. The reason for the application to the existing GB standard is that inspection authorities, certification authorities and manufacturers could not agree on a common understanding of the mandatory certification requirements to ensure product quality and safety as well as product innovation at the same time.

Manufacturers of hair dryers for pets are required to adjust their products according to GB 4706.15-2008 and complete the CCC certification process by December 31, 2016. Starting January 1, 2017 products that fall into these categories and do not have China CCC certification cannot be imported, bought, sold, used or traded in China.
