Cixi enterprises enters emerging markets of the Gulf States

This is our symbol of applying for GCC authentication for exports to the Gulf Stats. said Wang Hongwei, who is in charge of the Foreign Trade Department of Ningbo Huanhai Electrical Appliances Co. Ltd., pointing to a label on the socket of the electrical iron, a newly developed product of the company. The electrical iron has now passed the GCC authentication and a trial order of 2000 sets has been produced to be sold to the Gult States.

According to the GCC technical regulations on low-voltage electrical equipment issued by the Gulf States on July 1 last year, all the low-voltage electrical products exported to the seven Gulf States must meet the demands of the regulations and be labeled with the G-MARK before they can be cleared at the customs and put into sales and circulations in the seven countries. As for the exporters, to get the GCC certificate, all the series of the products should be accompanied with their CB report and 8000 yuan will be submitted as the authentication fee for each GCC certificate, as well as an annul registration fee of 2000 yuan for each certificate.

According to the statistics from the Technological Center of Ningbo Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, since last July, the testing fee for the G-MARK application by the enterprises of Cixi County has exceeded 1.5 million yuan, covering such products as fridge, washing machine, heater and electrical iron.

Since the Gulf States elevated their product access threshold, some enterprises have taken the initiative to address the technological barriers and market control problems, thus they can not only maintain their market share but also take advantage of the market blank of the G-MARK authentication to explore new market space
