CCC: Article Regarding CCC Certification, Published on “AutomotiveNL”21. July 2016
The regional manager for Benelux MPR China Certification GmbH, Mr. Edwin ter Burg has recently published an article about CCC certification for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. This post was published as an online article on 20th of July 2016 on the online platform of AutomotiveNL.
The article starts with an explanation what CCC is and why it is necessary to obtain a CCC certification. The requirements for imported products to China, as well as for products produced in China, have risen steadily in recent years. In 2002, the CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) certification was introduced. In particular, car manufacturers and automotive suppliers can get huge problems at the Chinese Customs, since imported products are stopped at customs or returned to the sender if no CCC certificate can be provided.
Successively the article explains how to deal with interior trimming products. Since the announcement of new regulations in 2015 a variety of interior trimming parts have become subject to CCC certification. This means that many components which previously did not require CCC certification now do. The article highly recommends that automotive suppliers should be in constant consultation with the car manufacturers to previously find out whether the components are also designated for the Chinese market or not. The article explicitly points out, that even if the components are not CCC relevant at the first sight, you should discuss the product with a consulting company to be on the safe side.
In the last section of the article it is mentioned that the Chinese laws and regulations are constantly changing and the notices are published only in Chinese language. In order to minimize the risk of missing the announcements it is crucial to have a qualified consulting company like MPR China Certification GmbH by your side.
