0 Introduction
This Rules is established based on the safety risk and certification risk of low-
voltage switchgear. It stipulates the basic principles and requirements for the
implementation of China Compulsory Certification for low-voltage switchgear.
This Rules can be used with other general rules issued by Certification and
Accreditation Administration (CNCA), such as “China Compulsory Certification
Implementation Rules - Manufacturing Enterprise Classification Management,
Certification Mode Selection and Determination”, “China Compulsory
Certification Implementation Rules - Utilization of Manufacturing Enterprise Test
Resource and Other Certification Results”, “China Compulsory Certification
Implementation Rules - Factory Inspection General Requirements”.
The certification body shall make principles for certification according to the
general implementation rules and this Rules and implement them accordingly.
Manufacturing enterprise shall ensure that their certified products are capable of
sustaining compliance with the certification and are compatible with the
requirements of the standards.
1 Application scope
This Rules applies to low-voltage switchgear, including complete sets of power
switchgear with a rated voltage AC not exceeding 1000V and a frequency not
exceeding 1000Hz, bus trunk system (busway), power panels, complete sets of
equipment for construction sites, complete sets of power distribution equipment
for public power grids, reactive power compensation devices.
Due to the changes in the laws, regulations or related product standards,
technology, industry policies and other causes which may change the applicable
scope, the announcement released by CNCA shall be final and conclusive.
2 Terms and definitions
Design appraisal: In this Rules, design appraisal refers to a non-test verification
method that proves that the product meets the requirements of the certification
basis standard by means of verification comparison and verification evaluation.
3 Standards for certification
CLIENT shall provide the required materials according to the requirements of
application material checklist in certification implementation detailed-rules.
Certification body is responsible for auditing, managing, preserving and keeping
confidential of the relevant materials, and shall inform the CLIENT of the
auditing results.
6.3 Implementation arrangement
Certification body shall agree with the CLIENT on the relevant responsibilities
and arrangement of various aspects of certification implementation. And
according to the situation of manufacturing enterprise and classification
management AND the requirements of this Rules and certification
implementation detailed-rules, DETERMINE the specific program of certification
implementation and INFORM CLIENT.
7 Certification implementation
7.1 Type test
7.1.1 Type test plan
Certification body shall formulate the type test plan, after auditing the materials.
Type test plan includes the information all samples’ requirements and quantity,
test standard items, laboratory information etc.
7.1.2 Sample requirements of type test
The certification body shall specify the relevant requirements for
sending/sampling of certified products in the implementation rules. In general,
according to the requirements of certification body, samples of type test shall be
submitted by the CLIENT with representative samples for test. When necessary,
certification body may adopt on-site sampling / seal-samples method to obtain
the samples.
CLIENT shall guarantee that all the samples provided are consistent with actual
products. Certification body and/or laboratory shall inspect the authenticity of the
samples. If laboratory has any doubt on the authenticity of the samples, it shall
explain the situation to certification body and handle it accordingly.
According to relevant regulations and documents issued by CNCA, certification
body shall specify the list of critical components and materials used in the
product and relevant requirements in the certification implementation rules.
For critical components and materials within the scope of compulsory product
certification purchased in China, the manufacturer shall provide a compulsory
product certification certificate. For critical components and materials within the
scope of non-mandatory product certification, the certification body shall specify
the conditions and specific requirements for acceptable or recognized voluntary
certification certificates or type test reports in the certification implementation
7.1.3 Test items of type test
In principle, it shall include all applicable items specified in product standards.
When design appraisal is involved in the implementation of certification, part of
the testing items required to be tested shall be determined by the certification
body, and the CLIENT shall be notified.
7.1.4 Implementation of type test
In principle, type test shall be conducted in the laboratory designated by CNCA.
Laboratory shall conduct the type test to the samples, integrally record the whole
test and archive for retaining, so that the test process and results are traceable.
On the premise of not affecting the validity of certification results, certification
body may, according to "China Compulsory Certification Implementation Rules -
Utilization of Manufacturing Enterprise Test Resource and Other Certification
Results”, formulate the corresponding management procedure. The designated
laboratories delegate the testing personnel, according to the standard’s
requirements, to utilize the manufacturing testing resource to conduct test or
witness test; and the designated laboratories issue the test reports. The
designated shall ensure the authenticity, accuracy, and traceability of the test
conclusion. Certification body shall clearly define the specific requirements and
procedure in certification implementation detailed-rules.
7.1.5 Type test report
Certification body shall specify a unified form of the type test report.
After the type test is completed, the laboratory shall, in time, provide the type test
reports to certification body and CLIENT. The test report shall contain a description
of all products and certification-related information in the application unit. CLIENT
shall ensure that it is able to provide the complete and valid type test report to
certification body and laws enforcement authorities during the after-certification
7.2 Design appraisal
7.2.1 Implementation principles for design appraisal
On the premise of risk control, the certification body shall, in combination with the
classification management of manufacturing enterprises, clearly stipulate the
applicable scope and process of the implementation of design appraisal in the
certification implementation rules.
7.2.2 Method for design appraisal
Design appraisal can be carried out in two ways: verification comparison and
verification evaluation.
certification requirements; and ensure that the certified products are in
accordance with standards’ requirements; and maintain the conformity with type
test samples.
When the after-certification follow-up inspection shall be conducted during the
normal production of manufacturing enterprise, no-advance notice is preferred.
For those products that are not continuously manufactured, CLIENT shall
provide the production plan to certification body so that the follow-up inspection
can be conducted in an effective way.
8.1.2 Content of after-certification follow-up inspection
Certification body shall, according to “China Compulsory Certification
Implementation Rules - Factory Quality Assurance Capability Requirements”,
formulate the specific after-certification contents such as traceability inspection
requirements, product conformity inspection requirements; and clarify them
clearly in certification implementation detailed-rules.
8.2 Frequency and duration of after-certification supervision
The certification body shall, on the basis of classification management of
manufacturing enterprises, adopt different after-certification supervision
frequency for different types of manufacturing enterprises, and reasonably
determine the supervision time. Specific principles shall be specified in
certification implementation detailed-rules.
8.3 Records of after-certification supervision
The certification body shall record and file the whole process of after-certification
supervision, so as to ensure the traceability of the certification process and
8.4 Evaluation of after-certification supervision results
The certification body conducts a comprehensive evaluation on the conclusions
of the follow-up inspection and relevant materials/information. Those who pass
the evaluation can continue to maintain the certification certificate and use the
certification mark. If the evaluation fails, the certification body shall suspend or
