Following highly publicized cases of substandard products, product quality is high on the public agenda in China. Chinese consumers demand higher quality goods from homegrown and foreign brands alike. The Chinese government is taking proactive steps to improve product quality by setting national standards known as Guo Biao (GB) across various industries. It is essential for foreign brands to comply with applicable Chinese national and industrial standards for successful entry into China.
The ‘GB’ process involves more than just the qualification approval. Authorities conduct frequent spot checks and market surveillance to ensure products maintain compliance post-launch. The focus is to track product quality of products in China and enforce the latest requirements.
