CCC: New GB Standards for Adapters (GB2099.3-2015) and Extension Cables (GB2099.7-2015) Released

4. March 2016
According to the announcement No. 3 of the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) from January 8, 2016 additional GB standards have been released for adapters, plugs and sockets for domestic use and similar purposes.

The new GB Standards GB 2.099.3-2015 (“Plugs and Sockets for Domestic Use and Similar Purposes, part 2-5: Special Requirements for Adapters”) and GB 2.099.7-2015 (“Plugs and Sockets for Domestic Use and Similar Purposes, part 2-7: Special Requirements for Sockets of Extension Cables”) were added to the Implementation Rule CNCA-C02-01:2014.

Both GB Standards will come into effect on April 14, 2017.

For extension cables, the new standard GB 2099.7 has been added to the existing standards GB 2099.1 and GB 1002/GB 1003.

Adapters with Chinese plugs (specifically type A and I) need to be certified in accordance with GB 2099.1, GB 2099.3 and GB1002/GB1003. Adapters with foreign plugs are excluded.

Starting April 14, 2017 products that fall into these categories and do not have China CCC certification cannot be imported, bought, sold, used or traded in China.
