CCC Certification by Chinese Authorities

3. July 2014

There are several certification authorities responsible for certifying products for the Chinese market. Manufacturers of products with a CCC obligation are required to apply for the CCC certification with the responsible certification authority. After the application is accepted and approved, manufacturers will need to get their products tested in China by an accredited test laboratory and have their manufacturing facility inspected by the appropriate Chinese auditors.


It can be difficult for a manufacturer to know which certifying authority will be responsible for their product type. It is important to understand the roles and scope of each certifying authority before applying. The most important Chinese authorities are:

General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) is responsible for national quality, certification and accreditation, standardization as well as administrative law enforcement.

Certification and Accreditation Administration of China (CNCA) is responsible for the supervision and nationwide coordination of certification and accreditation activities as well as the maintaining the certification database.

China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS) is responsible for the approval of certification organizations, laboratories and inspection bodies.

Standardization Administration of China (SAC) is the standards organization in China responsible for unified management, supervision and overall coordination of standardization and implementation.

China Certification & Inspection Group (CCIC) is a third party certification organization for verification, inspection, certification and testing services.

China Quality Certification Centre (CQC) is the largest independent certification body with responsibilities for the implementation of product certification.

China Certification Centre for Automotive Products (CCAP) is the certification body for automotive products sold on the Chinese market.
