is GB18030 a combination of CJK and CJK extension?

I cannot find GB18030 stardard in local library, neither can I find it
anywhere on the Internet. I wish to know the stardard itself.

GB18030 contains about 27000 characters. CJK contains about 21000 characters
and CJK Extension A 6000 characters. (i don't remeber the actual number.) It
seems GB18030 is simple a combination of the later two, only different in
order. Is it true?
