China: Amending Safety and EMC Certification Rules for Lighting Equipment

In November 2019, CQC published a Notice on safety and EMC certification rules for lighting equipment to take immediate effect.

The Notice divides the original CQC certification rules for lighting equipment into two parts: CQC12-465313-2016 Safety and EMC Certification Rules for Lighting Equipment and CQC12-465319-2018 Safety and EMC Certification Rules for String Lights.

As such, all content in relation to string lights in the original certification rules for lighting equipment are deleted.
The notice also deleted reference to certification standard GB 7000.9-2008.

From 27 November 2018, all string lights must be certified according to CQC12-465319-2018 Safety and EMC Certification Rules for String Lights.
Current certificate holders of string lights should complete certificate renewal within a year from the enforcement of the new certification rule.
