13. October 2022

On July 19, 2022, the State Administration for Market Supervision (SAMR) in China issued a new mandatory national safety standard GB 4943.1-2022, which is equivalent to the international standard IEC 62368-1:2018 ‘Audio/ video, information and communication technology equipment-Part 1: Safety requirements’. It is expected that the applications according to the new standard will start from August 1, 2023, onward.

The old standards, GB 4943.1-2011 & GB/T 9254-2008, will remain valid until July 31, 2024. After this date, only applications according to the new standard will be accepted and the old certificates will become invalid.

More information is expected to be announced by the SAMR by the end of the year. Stay tuned!
