Buy electric bicycles and look for the CCC certification mark
September is the national "Quality Month". Guangdong is a major province in the production and consumption of electric bicycles. How is the implementation of the new national standard for electric bicycles and how should consumers buy them? On September 21, Tang Wu, deputy director of the Guangdong Provincial Market Supervision Bureau, led a team to launch the "Guangdong People's Voice Hotline" program to respond to these issues. Consumers should look for the CCC certification mark of the electric bicycle body when purchasing, and check the on-board certification certificate, and compare the appearance, battery model, and motor model on the certificate with the actual product.
In April last year, the mandatory national standard of "E-bike Safety Technical Specification" (referred to as the "New National Standard") was formally implemented. Chen Yehuai, director of the Quality Supervision Department of the Guangdong Provincial Market Supervision Bureau, introduced that since the implementation of the new national standard, Guangdong requires manufacturers to implement the new national standard. At the same time, it has also changed the access of electric bicycle companies. The original production license has been changed to compulsory certification. After the implementation of compulsory certification for more than 150 electric bicycle manufacturers in Guangdong Province, there are now only about 140. In the sales link, the Guangdong market supervision department guided more than 10,000 electric bicycle sellers to make promises, and at the same time strengthened the quality supervision of electric bicycle chargers and lithium-ion batteries. In addition, the public security department has also carried out the registration and management of electric bicycles, and will not register and license vehicles that have not obtained CCC certification.
According to reports, since this year, the Guangdong market supervision department has inspected 13,525 electric bicycle sales stores, spot-checked 561 electric bicycles and accessories, and seized 994 electric bicycles without a factory name and 945 electric bicycles without CCC certification. It is illegal to sell counterfeit and inferior electric bicycle products.
How do consumers choose electric bicycles that meet the new national standard? Chen Yehuai introduced that from the characteristics of electric bicycles, the new version of electric bicycles must have pedals, front and rear lights, front and rear reflectors, and frame codes. The weight of the new version of electric bicycles is no more than 55kg, and the maximum speed is no more than 25km/h. Not more than 48V. The easiest way is to see if there is a CCC certification mark on the body of the electric bicycle. And check whether there is an on-board certification certificate, compare the vehicle appearance diagram, battery model, motor model, etc. on the certificate with the actual product, and scan the QR code on the certificate.
