CCC Certification for Explosion Protection Products in China11. July 2019
According to an announcement by the Chinese market regulation authority SAMR (State Administration for Market Regulation) CCC certification will become mandatory for explosion protection products. Starting October 1, 2019 these products can apply for China CCC certification and from October 1, 2020 CCC will become mandatory for these products. Previously, all products that were explicitly used in an explosion protection environment were excluded from the CCC catalogue. Along with this announcement the authority also published the new implementation rule CNCA-C23-01:2019 in which it regulated which products have to be CCC certified in the future.
The following explosion protection related products are some that will require CCC:
- Explosion protected motors
- Explosion protected electrical hydraulic pumps
- Energy distributing systems
- Safety switches, explosion control products, explosion protection products
- Products for setting of an explosion
- Converters used in explosion protection areas
- Plug in devices
- Explosion monitoring products
- Climate devices and wind devices
- Heat supplying products
- Components of explosion protection products (casing, cable cover, etc.)
- Measuring devices, instrument panels
- Safety fences
Manufacturers of products affected by this new regulation are advised to get the certification process started in time to make sure to receive the certificates before the October 1, 2020 deadline.
Please note that not all ex-products are covered by the new Implementation Rule. For example, LED lights are not included in this new regulation. For these products excluded from the CCC catalogue it is still possible to convert ATEX certificates to chinese Ex-certificates.
