3 Definitions
For the purposes of this Standard, the following definitions apply.
3.1 catalytic converter
A device which uses catalysts to reduce hydrocarbon (HC), carbon monoxide (CO)
and nitric oxide (NOx) in automotive exhaust.
3.2 original equipment catalytic converter
4 Test conditions
4.1 For all test items which are carried out on the road or in test site, the test
conditions and vehicle preparation etc. shall comply with the general provisions of
GB/T 123534.
4.2 For all test items which are carried out inside test room, the test conditions etc.
shall comply with the general provisions of GB 14761 or GB 14762.
4.3 The vehicle for the evaluation test for the replacement catalytic converter shall
be driven for 3 000 km at least. The vehicle emission control system shall be free from
any defect; any original equipment part related to emission control shall be repaired or
replaced in case of excessive wear or malfunction. Before emission test, the vehicle
shall be adjusted correctly according to the technical specifications of the manufacturer.
4.4 The engine for the accelerated ageing test of the catalytic converter shall be
repaired and maintained correctly to ensure all properties comply with the technical
specifications of the manufacturer, especially that during the accelerated ageing test
of the catalytic converter, the excess air coefficient of the engine under steady working
conditions shall be controlled within the range of 1 ± 0.02.
5 Requirements
5.1 General requirements
5.1.1 The catalytic converter shall be marked indelibly of manufacturer name or
trademark, type of the catalytic converter and direction of inlet and outlet.
5.1.2 The design, manufacture and installation of the catalytic converter shall ensure
