CCC: New Implementation Rules for Vehicle Horns18. March 2016
In the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) announcement No. 31 of 2014 the new CNCA Implementation Rules for vehicle horns (CNCA-C11-05-2014) have been published. They were implemented on January 1, 2015 and officially took effect on January 1, 2016 for the CCC certification of new products. Existing CCC certificates that are in accordance with the old rules CNCA-02C-055-2005 need to be updated until December 31, 2016.
Also the CCAP (CCAP-C11-05:2014) and CQC (CQC-C1101:2014) have updated their relevant Implementation Rules. The old GB standard for vehicle horns GB 15742-2001 did not change and is still valid.
According to the new Implementation Rules (CNCA-C11-05-2014) products basically can be summed up into one certification unit if there are no significant differences regarding the following characteristics:
- Shape and measurements of the membrane(s)
- Type of sound leak notch(es)
- Nominal frequency of the sound
Furthermore, two new annexes have been added to the new Implementation Rules. According to the new annex 1 additional information and data are now required in the “Description form” of the application documents. Annex 3 is also newly added for the CCC certification of service parts after EoP (End of Production). Besides the application documents, further documents are required here.
