China’s National Certification and Accreditation Administration announced the publication of 8 existing mandatory GB standards that will be newly added and applied to CCC certification of automotive products. This was published under Notice No. 9, 2022 on July 8, 2022.
The following information was announced:

- Certification bodies may add these 8 standards to the existing standards as a regulatory basis for certifications from the date of publication of this notice until June 30, 2023 for newly accepted certification applications and on a voluntary basis from the corporate side. Beginning July 1, 2023 certification bodies must apply all standards, including the 8 new ones, to newly applied for certifications.
- Mandatory product certifications do not need to be renewed for affected products if they were supplied, sold and/or imported before July 1, 2023. However, they must continue to be compliant with existing laws and regulations.
- Issued and valid certificates can continue to be used. Certification bodies should use natural transition methods as opportunities for updating the featured standards, such as renewal of certificates due to expiry, annual surveillance or product changes.
