Announcement from CQC on further improvements to the CCC Self-Declaration Process14. January 2020
In December 2019 the CNCA had already announced, that old test reports from existing CCC certificates will be accepted for the application of the CCC Self-Declaration.
You can find our news about this topic here.
When converting existing CCC certificates to a voluntary CQC mark certification, CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) offers several services related to the CCC Self-Declaration/ China Supplier Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) in order to simplify the process. Nevertheless, the general requirements for the CCC Self-Declaration, a Chinese applicant for instance, still have to be fulfilled.
The applicant may only be a subsidiary or the dealer/importer of the manufacturer.
We can offer customers without a company in China the placement of a CCC applicant service to overcome this hurdle.
You can find more information on this service here.
The information transfer is also being offered for products that apply for an initial voluntary certification and have to apply for a China Self-Declaration for CCC conformity as a consequence of the CNCA announcement No. 44.
Furthermore, the CQC confirms that they will continue to conduct follow-up inspections and other post-certification supervision activities until October 31, 2020 in accordance with the relevant Implementation Rules in order to ensure the continued validity of existing CCC certificates. This date is the deadline to convert all certificates from affected product categories to the Self-Declaration of Compulsory Product Certification (SDoC).
After completing the application of the CCC Self-Declaration, the old CCC certificates need to be cancelled from the certification authority.
If one converts to voluntary certification and applies for the Self-Declaration of Compulsory Product Certification (SDoC) on that basis, the respective CCC certificates will automatically be cancelled by the authority after completion of the CCC self-declaration process.
The CCC Self-Declaration must not be confused with an omission of the need for CCC certification and the compliance regulations.
All relevant GB standards and CNCA Implementation Rules remain valid and product compliance must continue to be proven during production by conducting annual product tests according to the GB standard. All affected products will still need to be marked with the CCC logo.

In order to prove the product compliance it makes sense to obtain a voluntary CQC or CCAP certification in addition to the CCC Self-Declaration.
