CCC: Updated GB Standard for Household Appliances with an External Power Supply Published

26. November 2014
In November 2014 the Chinese certification authority CQC (China Quality Certification Centre, chin.: 中国质量认证中心) announced that household appliances with an external power supply will need to conform to the GB Standard (GB 2099.1-2008) for upcoming CCC certifications. The new requirement is in effect (since September 1, 2014) and applies to plugs and socket/outlets for household appliances as well as any related battery chargers. CCC certification in compliance to the GB 2099.1-2008 is required for Chinese made and imported products with an external power supply that uses a plug, direct network adapters and/or chargers.

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

household appliances. Isolated on white backgroundCorresponding 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.
