CCC: CCC Modification Approval must Completed by the End of 201614. November 2016
As we have mentioned in our news before, all CCC certificates in the categories affected by the update of regulations such as interior trimming products and seats are required to be updated to the new CNCA Implementation Rules.
Companies whose certificates have been issued in accordance with the old Implementation Rules are required to submit a CoP (Conformity of Production) Plan with the respective authority, before December 31, 2016. This is required regardless of which authority the certificate has issued.
Certificates that have been issued by the CCAP will be updated during the annual follow-up audit this year, companies that hold certificates issued by the CQC have to submit the correct CoP plan before the end of this year directly to the CQC.
When preparing the CoP plan it is crucial that it is completed on the appropriate CQC or CCAP approved template. CoP plans that are not submitted on the appropriate template, or that are incomplete will be rejected. In order to be able to facilitate a timely submission and acceptance of the CoP plan, the CQC will issue a “CQC Modification Approval” to the applicant. After obtaining the CQC Modification Approval the manufacturer is allowed to update the CCC certificates along with the next annual follow-up audit.
If the manufacturer is unable to submit a CoP plan before December 31, 2016, they will not be able to obtain the CQC Modification approval. Certificates that are not updated by January 1, 2017 will be out of compliance and subject to suspension, then cancellation.
There is not much time left in 2016, so the CoP plan must be submitted to the CQC as soon as possible. Without the Modification Approval there is a chance that products could be stopped by Chinese Customs.
China Certification Corporation supports their clients during the entire process. We will assist them in preparing a CoP plan then submitting it to the CQC for acceptance. Once the CQC has audited and accepted the plan, we ensure that our customer will receive the Modification Approval which is necessary so that the upcoming audit can be conducted according to the new Implementation Rules.
