Recently, the reporter learned that in order to effectively promote the implementation of this standard and protect the health and safety of consumers, the National Building Materials Industry, Building Hardware Plumbing Product Quality Supervision, Inspection and Testing Center and the China National Construction Union Trust Certification Center will implement “ceramic sealing faucets”. “The certification of metal contaminant precipitation limits for sheet-sealed faucets” work.
Or into the “3C” certification of faucet products
The lead incident in faucets last year has aroused people’s attention to excessive heavy metals in faucets. However, the current GB18145-2003 “Ceramic Sealing Sheet Faucet Standard” only serves as a recommended standard for lead precipitation in faucets, which is not mandatory and is not legally binding on enterprises. The faucet lead incident became a catalyst for the accelerated introduction of the new version of the “Ceramic Sealing Sheet Faucet Standard”, which was officially released on May 6 this year, and the specific implementation time was clarified. The biggest change in the new version compared with the original standard is the addition of the prescribed limits for the precipitation of 17 metal pollutants such as lead, chromium, arsenic, manganese, and mercury, which are also mandatory provisions.
The first faucet new national standard certification starts, and the first batch of companies meeting the standard will be announced next month
“Certificate of metal pollutant precipitation limit for ceramic sheet sealing faucet” is the first certification work for the new national standard of faucet. According to industry insiders, its core value is that the certification is scientific, fair and objective through a prestigious institution or organization. An authoritative result obtained later can reduce the burden of repeated certification and testing of enterprises, promote industrial upgrading and eliminate backward production processes. “Certificate of metal pollutant precipitation limit for ceramic sheet sealed faucet” may play the role of “3C certification in sanitary ware industry” in the future, and become a market access certificate for faucet products.
The first batch of certified enterprises will not exceed 15
In fact, the “Certificate of Limits for Metal Pollutants Precipitation in Ceramic Sheet Sealing Faucets” has been launched, and many companies have voluntarily applied for certification. According to insiders, the National Building Materials Industry Building Hardware Plumbing Products Quality Supervision, Inspection and Testing Center and the China National Construction Union Trust Certification Center selected a number of outstanding domestic and foreign brands to carry out this certification. After strict testing and certification, it is expected that the number of the first batch of certified companies will not exceed 15. The first batch of certified companies will be announced in December. Reporters from China Jie.com learned that TOTO, Roca, Kohler, Luda, Moen, Zhongyu, Braun, Jiumu, Hengjie, Brilliance and other brands are already in the first place. List of batch certification. For the first batch of certified companies, they not only once again proved their position as an industry leader, but also took the lead in obtaining authoritative product certification, taking the lead in market promotion and product promotion, and will further enhance brand awareness and competitiveness.
The implementation of the new national standard must pay attention to the real enterprise
The launch of the “Certificate of Metal Pollutants Precipitation Limits for Ceramic Sheet Sealing Faucets” shows that relevant national departments are working hard to implement the new standards. It is foreseeable that the implementation of the new national standards will bring about a series of changes. More measures will be introduced to ensure the implementation of the new national standard. As a faucet manufacturer, we must pay attention to the implementation of the new national standard, continuously improve the process technology, produce and sell products that meet the new national standard, and must not take a chance, otherwise it will eventually be eliminated by the market.
