Mandatory national standards, covering equipment such as audio and video, information technology and communication technology, expand the scope of application of the standard. And the new standard takes into account the dangers of electric shock, fire, overheating, sound and light radiation that may occur in the process of using various electronic products, and proposes corresponding protection requirements and test methods, which effectively improves the safety of electronic products.

For consumers, the new standard supplements and sorts out the new hidden dangers brought by new products such as wireless chargers and Bluetooth headsets to ensure consumer safety. For the country, the new standard is closer to the international standard, which reduces the incompatibility of my country’s electronic equipment to overseas markets, and will effectively enhance the export of my country’s electronic products in the future.
Regarding the product range to which the new standard applies, Liu Xiangang, vice president of the China Institute of Electronic Technology Standardization, said that speakers, TVs, mobile phones, computers, printers, etc. that are common in daily life are all applicable to the standard, and the release of the new standard is a matter for everyone. electronic product safety.
For example, the new standard requires that wireless chargers must have the function of identifying metal foreign objects and stop energy transmission to foreign objects in time. Prevent the wireless charger from heating up metal objects through energy transmission and causing burns, fires and other hazards. For headphones, the new standard requires that when the volume of the headphones exceeds the specified limit within a certain period of time, it should give a warning and require the user to confirm. If the consumer does not confirm, the headphones should automatically reduce to a safe volume.
It is worth mentioning that the new standard was published on July 19, 2022, and will be officially implemented on August 1, 2023.
