The NCTAS (National Technical Committee of Auto Standardization) has released the new GB/T Standard GB/T 31486 “Electrical performance requirements and test methods for power supply for electric vehicles” for the consultation phase. The standards GB/T 31486 is a mandatory standard for the traction battery testing. Parts and components from the field of electromobility partly require CCC certification.
Published on April 26, 2023, the standard is in the consultation phase until June 25, 2023. As part of this, the authority is asking that the public and all relevant bodies and experts, provide the responsible body with valuable information comments and insights regarding the revised standard. In this way, the Electric Vehicle Department, which is subordinate to the Automotive Standardization Technical Committee and aims to ensure safety of electronic vehicles and improve the standard.
It is highly recommended for manufacturers of cells, modules, packs and battery system to observe the standard before its final implementation since in many cases the authorities are requesting that already approved vehicles and their components need to undergo re-tested according to the newly implemented standard.
The electric vehicle market in China is one of the most important and fastest growing in the world. As the topic of electric mobility in China continues to grow in importance, it is therefore crucial that good regulations are established. Many parts and components in the field of electric mobility require CCC certification.
As soon as we know which changes will be adopted for the new standard version, we will provide the information on our website.
