  • New policy for SRD devices - No. 52-2019

    SRRC published a new policy for short range devices (SRD) or micro power devices No. 52, 2019 on 28.11.2019.

    Besides are few clarification on use and requirements of micropower devices, most notably, the announcement states that some frequency bands are no longer available from 2020 and  from 2022:

    VII. From January 1, 2020, stop production or import the special equipment for wireless transmission of electronic scale, wireless data transmission equipment in 230MHz frequency band, crane in 230MHz frequency band or wireless remote control equipment for transmission machinery which does not meet the requirements of this announcement but meets the requirements of the notice on Issuing the technical requirements for micro power (short distance) radio equipment (Ministry of information No. [2005] 423). And the 410mhz band automobile alarm and other micro power equipment specified in the notice on the use frequency of wireless automobile anti-theft alarm equipment ([2006] No. 61).

    As of January 1, 2022, the production or import of civil metering instruments, analog cordless telephones and micro power equipment in 698-787mhz frequency band that do not conform to the announcement but meet the requirements of the notice on the issuance of technical requirements for micro power (short distance) radio equipment (Ministry of information No. [2005] 423).

    The above micro power equipment that has been legally used in accordance with the original provisions can be used until it is scrapped.

    The appended catalogue and technical requirements besides some small changes most notably does not contain the 77 GHz automotive radars anymore. According to our research and checking with the authority, the micro power device regulation 423 from 2005 has not been repealed and the regulation is still in effect. However, it is currently not clear if the new policy with the appended technical requirements replace the previous micro power device regulations and what the status of the not explicitly mentioned categories and frequency bands is.

  • MIIT implemented requirements for SRRC approvals

    Started in March 2019, products which habe been type approved by SRRC (State Radio Regulatory Commission) shall follow a so-called sales reporting process. 

    All SRRC-approved products including SRRC-approved modules are subject to this requirement. The only exception are the short-range micro-power devices. A re-registration is not required, if they have been approved before.

    Vendors (if a product has numerous resellers, each of them has to go for a separate registration), importers, local representative, manufacturers (only applicable, if they sell to their clients directly) or online sales companies are required to register within 10 working days after selling the product. A local Chinese company is required to register at the MIIT via its web portal.

    Where a device has been registered at MIIT, a registration number & a QR code are issued. The registration number & QR code shall be attached at a visible location in the distribution store or on the website (in case the product is sold online). If there is no store or website, the vendor shall keep the registration number and QR code properly. The customers may scan the QR code in order to obtain information with respect to the product and its SRRC certification.

Safety Information for China

Type A Plug
Type A Sock Type A Plug Type A Sock

The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
Type C Plug
Type C Sock Type C Plug Type C Sock

The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.
Type I Plug
Type I Sock Type I Plug Type I Sock

The Type I plug has two flat pins in a V-shape as well as a grounding pin. A version of the plug, which only has the two flat pins, exists as well. The Australian plug also works with sockets in China. Australia’s standard plug/socket system is rated 10 amps but a plug/socket configuration rated 15 amps also exists, although the ground pin is wider. A standard 10 amp plug will fit into a 15 amp socket but not the other way around.
