In joint announcement No. 6 of 2014 the AQSIQ and CNCA announced that the previously voluntary CCC certification for Child Restraint Systems (CQC 11 – 491287-2013) will become mandatory September 1, 2014.
The safety tests will be performed under the GB Standard 27887-2011 “Restraining devices for child occupants of power-driven vehicles” which was implemented on July 1st, 2012. After September 1, 2015 child seats and child restraint systems must have a valid CCC certification in accordance with the prescribed standards, which will be issued by CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) or the CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products). Without a valid CCC certificate child seats and child restraint systems will not be allowed to be manufactured, sold, imported or used in other business activities.
More information regarding the CCC certification of Child Restraint Systems can be found in the corresponding implementation rule, which is expected to be published in summer 2014. We will publish the official announcements of the Chinese authorities in our “News” section.
