CCAP Announces Changes to Requirements and Regulations for CCC Certificates and CCC Logos

9. May 2024

In accordance with CNCA Announcement No. 2023-12, the decision of the TC11-2023-03 Technical Whole Vehicle Expert Group, and the decision of the TC12-2023-03 Technical Motorcycle Expert Group, on December 29, 2023, the China Certification Centre for Automotive Products (CCAP) announced the new design and format of the CCC certificate, as well as changes to the CCC logo implementation regulations.

The specific announcement reads as follows:

1. The content and form of the new CCC certificate have been revised.

2. The CCC certificate will be completely converted to electronic format.

In general, only an electronic version of the CCC certificate is issued. If the certificate is required in paper form, a separate application is required. The e-certificate and the paper certificate have the same legal effect. The standard format of the e-certificate is . OFD.

3. Translation of CCC certificates

By default, only the Chinese version of the e-certificate is issued. If required, CCAP can also provide translation documents in other languages (the English version by default). However, the translated document has no legal effect and cannot be used alone.

4. Implementing provisions

From 1 January 2024, CCAP will issue the CCC certificates in a new version.  Valid paper certificates and e-certificates in PDF format that have already been issued can still be used. These certificates should be naturally converted to the new format as soon as possible by amendment, expiry and/or renewal.

CCAP will print the new version of the CCC logo and issue it to the certificate holder in accordance with the rules for retroactive encoding. The manufacturer of the certified product acquires the CCC logo of the CCAP standard specifications with a valid CCC certificate (or CCC SD).
