There has been a standard update regarding the safety requirements for the CCC Mark for Luminaire Products. According to the Standardization Administration (SAC) of the P.R. China’s announcement, the standard “GB7000.1- 2015 (Luminaires – Part 1: General requirements and tests al requirements, IDT IEC60598-1:2014)” has been issued and will become effective on January 1, 2017. This new standard will replace the current version, GB7000.1-2007.

Product Scope of Impact
This standard upgrade will apply to ALL types of Luminaire products subject to the CCC scope. Please refer to the following for specific product categories covered by this standard update:

111

* The Group Number is identical to the four digits in the middle of the CCC certificate number. For example, for the certificate with Certification Number 2007011001247494, “1001” is the Group Number.

Based on CNCA’s Announcement “Circular No. 4, 2012, the relative requirement on the standard update for CCC Approvals,” all the CCC designated certification organizations like CQC will have the right to determine their own version of Implementation Timeline and Guidelines on Documentation and Sample Requirement for Standard Update. So far, CQC has not yet issued such a communication. However, UL will continue to track the development and provide updates as necessary.
