Manufacturers shall obtain MIIT approval before using the new mark by ways of submitting the design and use plan of the new mark to the Certification Center. They may adopt one or more methods for the new mark such as electronic display, physical print, label sticker or others that meet the requirements.

The new mark came into force on 1 July 2023. Manufacturers may apply to use either the new mark or to use the original paper mark until 31 December 2023. Starting 1 January 2024, only the new NAL mark shall be used. Previously issued paper markings are still valid and can be used until their certificates expire.
