PRC Resources: Using the Directory of Chinese National Standards
SAC maintains a database of all Chinese National GB Standards, which is searchable in English or Mandarin.
The database lists all mandatory and voluntary national standards, indicating voluntary standards with a “/T” prefix.
For example, a voluntary national standard will have the prefix “GB/T”, while a mandatory national standard will show the prefix “GB”.
