CCC: CCC Certification Needed for Canopies20. March 2015
In January 2015, the certification authorities have issued new Implementation Rules for interior trimming material, which include new products that will now be required to have CCC.
In our news section, we have recently informed you about the updates of the Chinese certification authorities. The largest Chinese certification authority CQC (China Quality Certification Centre, chin. „中国质量认证中心“) and the Chinese certification authority CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products, chin. „中汽认证中心“) both recently published their own version of Implementation Rules for the CCC certification of interior trimming materials. These new Implementation Rules apply for the interior trimming materials which are installed in driver/passenger compartment and luggage compartment as well as some parts that are located in the engine compartment.
Only parts that fulfill the minimum size of 356mm x 100mm require to apply for the mandatory CCC certification. As of January 2015, the canopy is one of the new products that has been included into the CCC scope. The following parts of the canopy are relevant for CCC certification:
- Canopy (outer)
- Canopy (inner lining)
- Insulation layer/ Insulation between canopy outer and inner lining
- Glass (must be certified separately)
According to the new Implementation Rules, the canopy fulfills the minimum size of 356mm x 100mm and will now need to have CCC certification before entering the Chinese market. Even though the canopy was not included in the Mandatory CCC Product Catalogue before, manufacturers of canopies will now need to apply for CCC certification. Suppliers of canopy materials should check to see if their products are relevant for CCC certification.
