ok, i got it!
currently, there are so many certification systems concerning building materials in china, where three ones are commonly accepted as follows:
1. ten rings type i & ii, issued by SEPA
2. environment-preferable and fire-resistant system, that has higher requirements for building materials and it is not an easy job for a facility to obtain it.
3. green building material systems

the previous metioned is not available in english for use now. some experienced professionals think building materiasl, well in compliance with GB 18680~18688 and GB 6566, can be employed in green buildings.
this is simple messages on green building materials for reference.

This article from Environmental Building News is the best description of the various material rating systems that I've seen, though you'll need a subscription to access the full article.

I can recommend the site below for green building as they adhere to all the standards and have relevant info about the standard themselves on the website- UK though.

Hope it's useful.
