Release of 21 GB Standards, including for Passenger Vehicle Seats

18. January 2024

In November 2023, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), together with the National Standardization Administration Committee, officially announced and approved 21 new, mandatory GB Standards, including GB 13057-2023 Strength of passenger car seats and their vehicle fasteners. This replaces the previous version GB 13057-2014 and came into force January 01, 2024. Car seats and components, as well as their fasteners in vehicles, are generally subject to CCC Certification.

In China, vehicles and automotive components must meet strict eligibility criteria for CCC certification. Since its introduction in 2002, this certification has applied to both imported and domestic products. Meeting the deadlines set by the GB standards for product testing and auditing is a mandatory requirement of CCC certification. In addition, it is necessary for change management in the automotive industry to remain flexible and to be strategically planned specifically for the Chinese market.
