2018 National Leather Industry Standardization Technical Committee Standards Seminar

 

Typical topic : How to understand the effective date (September 1st 2018) of these new standards ?

  1. If production date (on the label) before September 1st 2018, ok to follow old standard QB/T 1333-2010.
  2. If production date (on the label) after September 1st 2018, must follow new standard QB/T 1333-2018.
  3. If no production date indicated, since September 1st the Chinese authorities will follow new standard QB/T 1333-2018 for spot checking.

However, these standards are “QB/T” therefore not Mandatory standards. If label indicates the old standard for those production date after September 1st products, spot checking team will then apply tests follow old standard, but will inform the brands/stores to update to the new version. Policy might be changed from time to time, however, it is always better to follow new standard.

QB/T 1333-2018 : Handbag – major updates of “shocking impact” requirements (test method follow QB/T 2922-2018):

 

1. Cancelled the "superior product" level requirement.

2. Changed the specified loading per “volume”(method follow QB/T 5083-2017 Volume Measurement) andnot per “dimension (which is not reasonable)” anymore, see below 2018 details :

Changed the specified loading per “volume”(method follow QB/T 5083-2017 Volume Measurement) andnot per “dimension (which is not reasonable)” anymore, see below 2018 details

3. No need to check after testing the “<30% deformation of strap loop" anymore

4. Exemption. No need to test if the "un-fixed" external length (perimeter) of the strap/handle is less than 120mm, see below an example (measure the length from point A to B).

5. Exemption. No need to test the folded bag,“folded bag” means an "easy to fold and very light bag", seeexamples below. Normally very thin fabric with single layer and easy to be folded to a small pack (eg: shopping bag).

6. Exemption. If there're both single strap and double strap stitched to the same point, then no need to testthe single strap, only test double strap.

7. New request, if there is a "bag in bag" design, and if the inner bag has completely individual con-structure and components (with strap, handle..) which could be treated as individual bag during daily use, should then apply shocking impact testing separately for the inner bag. See below example.

 

Three new tests were added to QB/T 1333-2018 :
