China Kicks Off Mandatory LED Certification Standards

China’s Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA) has recently published LED regulations to improve the country’s product certification process. Adjustments have been made to the mandatory regulations to include LEDs, and will become effective starting in Sept. 1, 2014.

Once the latest regulations come into effect, related government agencies and organizations must certificate products accordingly. Products certified before the new regulations can still be deployed. Manufacturers should take products to designated certification organizations in China to have products certified according to the new regulations, or manufacture new product models to meet the standards.

CNCA cited technology advancements and the launch of new products on the market resulted in the latest amendments:

  1. Two new products including “electronic ballast for High intensity discharge (HID) luminaires and direct-current (DC) or alternative current (AC) LED controller modules” were added to the electric ballast for lighting category.
  2. Under low voltage appliances leakage protector category, Socket Residual Current Device (SRCD) for home appliances was added. Type B Residual-Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) and Type B residual-current circuit breaker with overload protection (RCBO), and selective main circuit-breakers (SMCB) for home and similar applications were also added.
  3. Under electric cable/line category, new product models that meet the JB/T8735.2-2011 and JB/T8734.2~.6-2012 specs were added.

Designated certification organizations in China will implement these new standards during certification of manufacturers products, and will carry out related promotions. Starting from Sept. 1, 2015, any products in the above list cannot be manufactured, sold, imported or used in any other business activities without approval.
