---Combination of quantitative and qualitative study
During the assessment, the quantitative study, qualitative study, or a
combination of them may be adopted to provide assessment indicators. When
appropriate data is obtained, the assessment indicators shall be quantified as
much as possible.
---Give priority to severity of consequences
The determination of risk level is mainly based on the severity of injury caused
by the accident and the possibility of the occurrence of injury. When the
consequences of injury are extremely severe, even if the possibility of its
possible occurrence cannot be accurately estimated, as long as there is a
certain possibility, a suggestion shall still be given that it is necessary to take
measures to reduce the risk.
5 Assessment Procedure
5.1 General Rules
5.1.1 Generally speaking, the assessment is firstly based on the basic normal scenario.
If the assessment result is the highest risk under this situation, usually no further
assessment is required. Otherwise, it is necessary to further consider the influence of
other factors on the assessment result, such as: the foreseeable abuse, the
consumer’s vulnerability and unfavorable operating environment, etc.
NOTE: the normal scenario refers to a reasonable situation of use that does not consider
special circumstances. For example, it is assumed that a certain consumer has
normal capabilities and certain safety awareness of consumer products; he / she
can use consumer products in accordance with instructions and can even normally
use consumer products without instructions.
5.1.2 In each link of the assessment of consumer products, necessary assessment
techniques may be selected in accordance with the specific situation. See GB/T 27921
for the assessment techniques.
5.1.3 Generally speaking, the assessment bases on the collected information of
accidents, injuries and accident symptoms of consumer products to diagnose the
hazard of the consumer products. In terms of the hazard, various scenarios that might
lead to accidents and injuries are speculated. For different scenarios, the severity and
possibility of the caused injuries are respectively analyzed; the highest risk level is
determined through comprehensive analysis. The basic assessment procedure is
shown in Figure 1.
5.2.2 Information inquiry
In terms of a certain consumer product, for the collected safety information, based on
the experience and preliminary judgment, if it is considered necessary to conduct an
in-depth investigation, investigators shall be arranged to further collect, verify and
organize relevant information, including:
a) Basic information
For consumer products to be assessed, basic information shall be collected
as much as possible, such as:
---Technical information, such as: product models, main technical parameters,
design principles and structures, etc.;
---Relevant laws, regulations and standards;
---Information of relevant historical recall cases.
b) Information of accidents, injuries and accident symptoms
For consumer products to be assessed, relevant information of accidents,
injuries and accident symptoms shall be collected as much as possible, such
---Situation of accident product, such as: product photos, service life, long-
term service environment and maintenance records, etc.;
---Physical evidence on the site of accident, for example, accident consumer
products or their fragments, etc.;
---The time, place, environment, site conditions and process of the occurrence
of accident, such as: photos, videos and other materials;
---Situation of operators or injured persons, such as: the number of injured
persons; the age, gender, physical condition, education level and
occupation of the operators and injured persons; the type and severity of
injury, medical treatment and rehabilitation, etc.;
---Cause analysis report or expert opinions on accidents, injuries and accident
---Information of relevant accidents and injuries obtained through daily
c) Information of scope of consumer products being affected
Information of the scope of consumer products that might have the same
1) Select assessment experts;
2) Organize the execution of assessment
Undertake the fundamental work of assessment. The specific
responsibilities include:
1) Collection and verification of necessary information;
2) Investigation of relevant accident cases;
3) Technical exchange;
4) Necessary test and preliminary problem analysis
Accept consultation, assist or undertake relevant technical work, such
1) Assist investigators in relevant work;
2) Carry out risk identification;
3) Analyze and assess risks;
4) Submit proposals Requirements for assessment team When the regulator establishes an assessment team, in principle, the
participation of interested parties shall be avoided, especially the manufacturer of the
consumer products being assessed. When necessary, the cooperation of interested
parties may be coordinated. When the manufacturer establishes an assessment team, the assessment
team may be composed of experienced management personnel and professional
technicians of the enterprise. When the circumstance is relatively complicated, relevant
technical experts in the industry may be invited to jointly establish an assessment team. Requirements for experts
The selected assessment experts shall possess disciplinary knowledge, professional
skills and experience related to the assessment items. The following should be
---Personnel who are familiar with the safety requirements for relevant electronics
and electrical appliances, such as: regulations and standards, etc.;
---Personnel who understand the design principles, functions and performance of
relevant consumer products;
---Personnel who understand problems in the use and maintenance of relevant
consumer products, and the basic situation of accident history.
5.3 Risk Identification
5.3.1 General rules
Analyze the hazards of consumer products in the foreseeable use and foreseeable Under a certain scenario of injury, product injury is usually caused by the
combined action of multiple factors, or, it may be comprehended as injury caused by
various factors in separated steps. For each possibility influencing factor, the
probability value of its possible occurrence may be estimated in accordance with the
information of historical accidents that have occurred, the overall product quality status,
the possible hazardous occurrence scenarios and the actual experience, etc. Multiply
the probability values of all the relevant influencing factors to obtain the overall
probability value (P). The calculation is shown in Formula (1). See Appendix B for an
example of the estimation.
Pi---the probability value of the possible occurrence of the ith factor;
n---number of influencing factors of possibility;
i---the ith possibility-influencing factor.
NOTE: “probability of injury” is an estimation of the probability of the possible occurrence
of injuries during the entire life cycle of a consumer product. It is not calculated by
dividing the number of a few sold products that would cause injuries by the total
number of products. When the basic data information is insufficient, which leads to the deficiency
of sufficient basis or the impossibility of objective estimation of the probability value,
the method provided in GB/T 27921 may be taken as a reference; all the existing
relevant information may be used to estimate the probability value.
5.5 Risk Assessment
5.5.1 Determination of risk level
On the basis of risk identification and risk analysis, in accordance with the severity
level of the occurrence of injuries and the corresponding possibility level of the
occurrence, and Figure 3, respectively determine the risk level; in which, the highest
level is deemed as the ultimate risk level.
The risk level is divided into 4 levels, which are respectively expressed below:
 S---severe risk;
 H---high risk;
 M---moderate risk;
c) Identified hazards;
d) Analysis of risk influencing factors;
e) Assessment result;
f) Related suggestions.
6 Risk Control
6.1 Technical Measures of Risk Control
In accordance with the problems found in the assessment process and the proposed
suggestions, through technical measures, for example, respectively or simultaneously
reducing the severity of injuries and the possibility of the occurrence of injuries, reduce
the risks to below the allowable level.
In order to reduce risks, corresponding measures may be taken in the following
a) Enhance the intrinsic safety of products;
b) Reinforce protective measures;
c) Improve warning instructions.
6.2 Management Measures of Risk Control
There is no necessary connection between risk level and management measures of
risk control. Under general circumstances, in accordance with the assessed risk level,
corresponding management measures of risk control that should be taken are as
a) When the risk level is “S” and “H”, take measures like recalling or removing
products from the market.
b) When the risk level is “M”, comprehensively consider whether it is necessary
to take measures like recalling or removing products from the market. When
the involved products have hazards with extremely severe consequences, for
example, accidental fatalities, even if the probability of the occurrence of these
accidents is extremely low, corresponding measures like recalling or removing
products from the market also need to be taken.
c) When the risk level is “L”, measures may not be taken.
Appendix C
Risk Level Sensitivity Analysis
C.1 Overview
Sensitivity analysis is to identify which parameters have greater influence on the
assessment result through the analysis of the influence of a certain parameter data
change on the input end on the risk level. Hence, its accuracy shall be further ensured.
C.2 Method of Analysis
Generally speaking, the method of adjusting a certain risk factor parameter upwards
or downwards by one level (if a certain risk parameter can estimate the maximum value,
then, the parameter adopts the maximum value, and no adjustment is needed) is
adopted, at this moment:
---If the risk level changes, it means that the obtained risk level is sensitive to the
parameter, and its risk level might also be in a critical state, then, it is necessary
to re-verify whether valid information is thoroughly adopted in the estimation
and assumption of the parameter;
---If the risk level does not change, it means that the obtained risk level is
insensitive to the parameter, then, it is unnecessary to re-confirm the parameter,
and the estimated value is very likely to be accurate.
