New GB-Standard GB 17465.4-2015

The Chinese certification authority has published a new GB-Standard for CCC-Certifications (China Compulsory Certification) of couplers:

GB 17465.4-2015 Appliance couplers for household and similar general purposes―Part 2: Couplers dependent on appliance weight for engagement

Among other, the following changes become effective:

  1. New testing requirements for couplers
  2. Delete of Annex B for test equipment
  3. Amendments to the table 2 for test voltage and insulation
  4. Increased testing requirements for appliance couplers with earthing contact

The GB-Standard will replace the latest standard GB 17465.4-2015. Applicants for the CCC-Certification might still choose to follow the new or the late standard GB 17465.4-2009 until June 2016.

Affected certificate holders might change their CCC-Certificates with the follow-up-certification in 2016. In case a CCC-Certificate is not completely updated until September 2017, the CCC-Certificates are suspended.
