CCC Certification for All Types of Pneumatic Tires Now Mandatory

19. April 2018

On August 1, 2016 we reported in our news section on the introduction of the China CCC requirements for pneumatic tires for different vehicle classes. The article can be found here.
As reported at that time, the new Implementation Regulations for the CCC (China Compulsory Certification) certification of pneumatic tires for cars, trucks and motorcycles came into force on January 1, 2016. One month later, on February 1, 2016, the corresponding GB standard for car tires (GB9743-2015) and truck tires (GB9744-2015) followed.

A transitional period until December 31, 2017 was set by the authorities for the manufacturers to make the changes and have the opportunity to certify their tires according to the Chinese standards.
Since January 1, 2018, it is no longer possible to import non-certified pneumatic tires for vehicle categories M, N, O and L to China.

The Chinese press reported that tires that were not certified or did not meet the applicable labeling requirements have already been seized in roughly 2,000 cases. The seized tires were either returned to the manufacturer or destroyed on site.

Correctly marking of the tires is essential. Even with a valid CCC certification the import without correct labeling is not possible. Incorrect markings can cause the tires to be rejected entry into China or seized.
