This FAQ content statement for importing 3RF2 or 3RF24/34 solid-state switching devices on the Chinese market

QUESTION:

What do you have to pay attention to when importing 3RF2 solid-state switching devices for ohmic loads or 3RF24/34 solid-state switching devices for switching motors on the Chinese market?

 

 

ANSWER:

 

3RF20/21/22/23 and 3RF24..-.A..

Solid-state switching devices for switching ohmic loads in compliance with IEC 60947-4-3 do not require approval for China. These devices can be imported to China without CCC approval.
However, labeling requirements must be complied with as a prerequisite for importing.
The packaging must feature the following information:

·         Product name in Chinese characters

·         Country of manufacture in Chinese characters

 

If problems with Chinese customs should be encountered, the importer must then negotiate with the local Chinese customs authorities themselves. The importer can make reference to the Siemens waiver and present documentation, but must ultimately clarify the import process him or herself. The Siemens waiver is a list of Siemens products that are considered suitable for importing to China and for which CCC approval is not required. Agreement on this list was achieved by local Siemens employees after discussions with local Chinese customs authorities.
The Siemens waiver lists some 3RF2 devices for ohmic loads. Siemens in China keeps the waiver up to date.

·         Technical data

The packaging must feature the following information:
