CCC: Updated GB Standard for Household Appliances with an External Power Supply Published26. November 2014
The previously applicable GB standards regarding the CCC certifications for Household and similar electrical appliances (GB4706.1), electromagnetic compatibility (GB17625.1) and for household appliances with power supply (GB4943.1) are no longer enough for a valid CCC certification. Existing CCC certificate holders will need to check compliance of their product also to the new standard and renew accordingly.
The new implementation rule CQC12-461237-2009 relates to the following products, which will require an update to the CCC certificate:
- Household and similar electrical appliances with an external power supply
- Specifically, external power adapters, chargers and built-in switching power supplies
Corresponding household appliances, which already have a valid CCC certification, will have to renew their certification until December 31, 2015 showing compliance with the new requirements. If the certificate holder fails to renew the existing CCC certificates before this date, their certificate will be suspended. The new Implementation Rule will be in full effect June 30, 2016. All certificates must be in compliance by this date or they will be subject to cancelation.
