Resolution TC11-2022-01 on the Implementation of GB Updates in the Automotive Sector20. April 2023
The years 2019 to 2022 were characterized by many regulatory updates in the automotive sector in China. For eleven of these standards a new resolution, TC11-2022-01, was published on Jan. 16, 2023 and aims to simplify their implementation and coordination for manufacturing companies. Many products in the automotive industry (for example complete vehicles and numerous components) require a CCC certification, a voluntary CQC certification or a voluntary CCAP certification for China.
The new resolution was published by the technical expert group TC11 of the Certification Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA). It mainly deals with deadlines for the implementation of the new standards, as well as the possible consecutive issuance of new certificates. In this context, the resolution distinguishes between products to be newly certified, and products already certified according to the old standard.
New certificates generally must be issued within one year for products whose existing certification needs to be adapted. This also includes any new test scopes that may need to be assessed and perhaps implemented. If, on the other hand, a specific deadline for the certification update is specified in the applicable new standard, it will always take precedence over the one-year deadline.
The eleven standards covered by resolution TC11-2022-01 include among others:
– GB/T 19754-2021: Energy consumption of heavy-duty hybrid electric vehicles
– GB/T 27840-2021: Fuel consumption of heavy commercial vehicles
– GB/T 19056-2021: Car drive recorders
– GB/T 6068-2021: Truck cranes and tire cranes
– GB 16897-2022: Brake hoses
All updates are of great relevance for not only for the manufacturers of certified products, but also their suppliers and their customers.
The Chinese GB Standards and Implementation Rules are regularly revised by the authorities, often having considerable implications for the corresponding product manufacturers. Updates are usually not announced and must be independently tracked and implemented by certified factories. Failure to do so may result in severe consequences, including cancellation of certification.
