Mandatory Standards are standards which are legally binding and can influence other technical regulations in China. These standards are enforced by legal and administrative regulations and are directly related to the protection of human health there personal property and all safety aspects.
Recommended standards are for products which are not classified under the scope of the Mandatory Standards.
A code number identifies the GB Standards for products as Mandatory or Recommended. For example Code number GB are mandatory standards and the code GB/T are recommended standards.
All standards that fall outside of these characteristics are considered to be Recommended standards. China GB standards can be identified as Mandatory or Recommended by their prefix code. Prefix code GB are Mandatory standards, GB/T are Recommended standards which resemble the Mandatory Standards.
Must I use GB Standards when exporting to China?

Furthermore, once the applicable standards for your product have been determined the procedures that must be taken to certify the product are laid out.
