CCC: CCC Certification for Child Safety Seats Mandatory After September 1, 201520. August 2015
As we previously stated in our news section (CCC: Expiration of Deadlines for Updating CCC Certificates) CCC Certification for child safety seats in motor vehicles will be mandatory starting September 1, 2015. All forms of child restraint systems and child seats including integrated child seats used in the automobile will be required to have CCC certification.
All child restraint systems will be required to have a valid CCC certificate and a CCC mark starting September 1, 2015. Manufacturers of child seats who did not start the China CCC certification process for their products yet, will not meet the Deadline. The CCC certification process is extensive requiring submittal of a complex application, supporting documentation, product testing in China, and a factory audit where the seats are manufactured. The whole process takes several months to complete.
In joint announcement No. 6 of 2014 by AQSIQ and CNCA the previously voluntary CQC certification for Child Restraint Systems (CQC11-491287-2013) became mandatory September 1, 2014. The safety tests are performed as required by GB Standard 27887-2011 “Restraining devices for child occupants of power-driven vehicles” which was implemented on July 1, 2012. After September 1, 2015 child seats, child restraint systems and integrated child seats must have a valid CCC certification in accordance with the prescribed standards, which are issued by the CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) or the CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products).
More information regarding the CCC certification process for Child Restraint Systems can be found in the corresponding implementation rule, which was issued in May of 2014 and has been in effect since September 1, 2014.
