The CQC (China Quality Certification Centre, in Chinese: 中国 质量 认证 中心), recently published an updated GB Standard for household and similar electrical appliances, vacuum cleaners and water suction cleaning appliances.
According to the CQC, the new GB Standard GB4.706.7-2014 will replace the existing GB Standard GB4706.7-2004. From the release date of GB4706.7 till January 1st 2016, the applicant has the opportunity to choose between the old and new standard for their product certification. From January 1, 2016 the new GB Standard will need to be achieved for any new certifications. Existing certificate holders for the relevant product group will need to update their certificate with the new standard no later than Jan 1st, 2017 in order to maintain the validity of their certificates. In case of overdue, the certificate will be temporarily suspended. If the certificate is not updated to the new GB4.706,7-2014 by April 1, 2017 all CCC certificates for household and electrical appliances, vacuum cleaners and water suction will be withdrawn.
The CQC website regularly publishes new announcements about products that require CCC certification as well as products that can be certified with a Voluntary CQC Mark Certification. It is the responsibility of the shipper and/or manufacturer to carefully check every product and to fully understand the applicable regulations prior to shipping. Each product category of the Voluntary CQC Mark Certification has its own Certification Rules, which are based on the National GB Standards. The Certification Rules have a corresponding Implementation Rule which the product must comply with in order to get a Voluntary CQC Mark Certification. The Implementation Rules can be found on the official website of the CQC. New Voluntary CQC Mark Certification products and product categories are posted on the website frequently along with important information regarding certification application start dates.
