    GB 18030 certainly does not define sorting. It defines a CCS/CES based on a mapping table to/from
    Unicode/ISO 10646.

    GB 13000 is, as far as I know, just the Chinese adoption of ISO 10646. As such, it is likely to also
    not define sorting because the relevant ISO standard is 14651 (=UCA).

    For general test data for determining support of GB 18030 I suggest to contact the Chinese
    government and its standards agency. They have defined a certification procedure, and I assume that
    the data and procedure are available. I have no direct contacts for this myself.
