E-Mobility: GB Standards for Hydrogen Refuelling Nozzles and Fuel Cell Test Methods

28. March 2024

As we have reported in the past, at the end of 2023, the State Administration for Market Supervision and Regulation of China (SAC) announced the approval of 423 new or revised national GB standard standards,  as well as two lists for the revision of national standards. In the list of new standards, which was published on December 28, 2023, the new standards also include those for the field of electromobility. Two standards specifically concern the area of test methods for the performance of fuel cells for electric vehicles and for hydrogen nozzles for fuel cell electric vehicles. Hydrogen-related products in the field of e-mobility often require CCC certification. Pressure vessels in particular usually also require a Chinese Manufacture License (SELO approval).

The relevant GB standards that are being revised in this regard are GB/T 26991-2011 for fuel cell test methods and GB/T 34425-2017 for hydrogen nozzles.

CCC certification serves as proof that certain products meet China’s national standards for safety and quality before they are sold or put into service in the Chinese market.

We will provide further details on these regulations and the timeline for their implementation as soon as this information becomes available.

Are you interested in CCC certification or the China Manufacture License for the Chinese market? We will check for you, without obligation, whether your product requires SELO licensing and prepare a quotation to give you an idea of the costs and efforts involved for a China stamp for pressure vessels.
