China – New compulsory standard for electrical safety

New standard refers to equipment connected to a telecommunication network.

The new compulsory standard GB 38190-2019 “Safety of equipment electrically connected to a telecommunication network” will become effective from November 1 of 2020.

The standard GB 38190-2019 is identical with IEC 62151-2000.

The standard covers safety requirements and compliance criteria under 3 headings:

  • Protection of service personnel working on the telecommunication network and other users of the telecommunication network, from hazardous conditions on the telecommunication network resulting from the connection of the equipment;
  • Protection of equipment users and equipment service personnel from voltages on the telecommunication network;
  • Protection of the telecommunication wiring system from overheating. We have prepared further information on the market approval for China on the corresponding subpage for you.
