Authorities in China closed for Chinese New Year 202319. January 2023
The Year of the Rabbit, which starts on January 21 of 2023, is heralded by the Chinese New Year festivities. The celebration, also known as the Spring Festival, has a yearly change in date because it is based on the lunar calendar.
During the holiday season, many Chinese government offices close early—often even a few days early—to give staff members adequate time to return home.
The Chinese authorities are once again shuttered for a few days this year. The CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) will be closed from January 21 to 27, 2023, inclusive, and test laboratories will likewise be closed during this time, according to official sources. From January 20 to 31, 2023, the CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products) will likewise be closed.
The US and Chinese subsidiaries of MPR China Certification GmbH as well as the German branch will all be open and conducting business as normal. Throughout the Chinese New Year, we will be happy to continue assisting you with your certification procedures.
