CCC: Article Regarding New Implementation Rules Published on the “Manufacturing Journal” Website16. September 2014
Mr. Julian Busch CEO of MPR China Certification GmbH / China Certification Corporation recently wrote an article regarding the new implementation rules for CCC certification of automotive components. It was published September 11, 2014 on the website of the “Manufacturing Journal Magazine”, an international journal for the manufacturing industry.
The article is in regard to the latest announcement by the Chinese authority the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration). In August 2014 the CNCA published 15 new implementation rules for CCC Certification. Amongst these are the following automotive parts:
- Seats and headrests
- Interior trimming parts
- Seat belts
Implementation rules are the regulatory basis required for CCC certification of a particular product. They define the scope of the product testing, as well as the overall process that will need to be completed before CCC certification can be issued. In these rules, you will find all of the relevant information including the number of test samples required for testing (all testing must be done at an accredited test laboratory in China) and the corresponding GB Standards (GB stands for Guobiao, Chinese for “National Standard”). The procedures of the initial audit, the annual follow up inspections and the correct marking of the component or product with CCC logo can also be found here.
The new implementation rules will be officially implemented on January 1, 2015. They will replace the previous version and all new CCC certifications need to be in compliance with the new guidelines going forward.
The article points out the need for CCC certificate holders to frequently check all relevant announcements and regulations by the Chinese authorities, since the GB Standards and corresponding Implementation Rules are changed frequently. It is the responsibility of the certificate holder to make sure that their products are in compliance with the latest standards.
