The GB standards are one of the most important groups of standards in China that regulate product compliance. They apply to both locally made and imported products and are a prerequisite for production facilities to obtain a CCC certificate for their products.
The CCC certificate is a mandatory certification in China that was introduced in 2002. It is similar to the European CE system and regulates that products that are subject to CCC certification can only be imported, sold and used in China after they have obtained CCC certification.
