China Kicks Off Mandatory LED Certificat
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:
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.
