On November 10, 2017 the Chinese certification authority CCAP which is responsible for CCC certification of automotive products published the new detailed implementation rules CCAP-C11-15:2017 for motorcycle helmets. Chinese manufacturers of motorcycle helmets must adhere to following information:
- Manufacturers with a production license of AQSIQ for motorcycle helmets need to apply for a CCC certification in order to get the production license converted to a CCC certificate. Within a period of 3 to 6 months after receiving the new CCC certificate, a factory inspection will be conducted by Chinese authorities. Test reports need to be prepared for the audit. In addition, Random Sample Tests may be requested.
- Starting from November 1, 2017 all manufacturers of motorcycle helmets must apply for CCC for their products according to the new implementation rule CCAP-C11-15:2017. The CCC certificate needs be obtained prior to the export to China. Motorcycle helmets which are not CCC certified are not allowed to be imported or sold to China from November 1, 2017 on.
The implementation rules consist of guidelines for the certification of specific product categories. The new regulations for motorcycle helmets are included in CNCA-C11-15:2017.
