On 1 August 2022, CNCA issued a notice announcing the inclusion of the two standards below into the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) scheme:

  • GB 4943.1-2022 “Audio-video, information technology and communication technology equipment Part 1: Safety requirements”
  • GB/T 9254.1-2021 “Information technology equipment, multimedia equipment and receivers Electromagnetic compatibility Part 1: Emission requirements”

GB 4943.1-2022 will replace GB 4943.1-2011 and GB 8898-2011, the previous standards for the CCC of audio/video, information, and communication equipment. While GB/T 9254.1-2021 will replace GB/ T 9254-2008 and GB/T 13837-2012.

Accordingly, implementation rules were also updated, including CNCA-C08-01: 2014 implementation rules on compulsory product certification – audio and video equipment, and CNCA-C16-01: 2014 implementation rules on compulsory product certification – telecommunications terminal equipment.

According to the notice, the renewal of certificates for these two standards shall be made before 31 July 2024. This transition period will allow relevant manufacturers to complete the renewal of the two standards through one single application and sample presentation, thus avoiding duplicate efforts and reducing cost; it is not, therefore, a way to postpone to the implementation of the two standards.

The following tables provide an up-to-date overview of the standards adopted for the CCC of audio/video, IT, and telecommunication terminal products, respectively.
