CCC: Updated GB Standards for electrical vehicles5. June 2015
As the automobile industry focuses more and more on electric vehicles, new and updated safety requirements will be implemented. On May 15, 2015 the SAC (Standardization Administration of the Peoples Republic of China) in cooperation with the Chinese authority CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration) announced on their website that three GB Standards for electric vehicles were updated. The updated regulations will go into effect October 1, 2015 and will replace the current standards.
The following GB Standards are affected by this update:
- GB/T 18384.1: Integrated Rechargeable Energy Storage System
- GB/T 18384.2: Operational Safety of the Vehicle and Protection Against Disturbances
- GB/T 18384.3: Protection Against Electrical Shock
The previous GB Standards will be not sufficient anymore for the CCC certification of electrical vehicles. Existing certificate holders will need to check compliance of their products to the new standards, and renew their certificates accordingly. Manufactures may need to re-send test samples to China for testing and submit an application for modification under the updated GB-Standard. Failure to do so could result in suspension or revocation of their certificate(s).
