CCC: New GB Standard for Specific Automobile Interior Trimming Parts in M3 vehicles (busses)2. June 2015
The Standardization Administration of the People’s Republic of China (SAC in Chinese: 国家标准化管理委员会) recently published a new GB Standard for certain automobile interior trimming parts in M3 vehicles (busses). The new GB Standard is still being finalized with no complete version available yet.
Only interior trimming parts of M3 vehicles with more than 22 seats are affected by this new GB Standard. Sun blinders, screens, visors and curtains in automobiles ensure comfort for the driver and passengers. The quality and flammability of automotive interior trim parts are crucial to ensure passenger safety.
The updated GB Standard defines new technical requirements and test methods for certain automobile interior trimming parts in M3 vehicles. According to the new GB Standard, interior trimming parts that can be hung in a vehicle, such as sun blinders, screens, visors and curtains, will now need to undergo vertical flammability tests. The interior trimming parts for vertical burning tests must be of the following minimum sizes: 560 mm*170mm with an allowed variance of 2 mm each. Compliance to the new regulation requires that the vertical burning rate needs to be less than 100mm/min.
