CCC: Compulsory Implementation of New Regulations for CCC Certification of Products with Converter by 201722. March 2016
The CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration) announcement No. 3 in 2016 included a regulatory change making CCC certification for electronic products with a converter mandatory in accordance with CNCA-C02-01:2014. Electronic products with a foreign standard for the plug and/or socket are excluded, but can get a voluntary CQC Mark certification.
The electronic products (with converter) must meet the requirements of GB standards: GB 2099.1, GB 2099.3 and GB 1002/GB 1003, and will be certified according to the Implementation Rule CNCA-C02-01:2014.
The new version of GB 2099.3-2015 was published on October 13, 2015 and has been added to CNCA-C02-01:2014.
As of April 14, 2017 products that do not have China CCC certification according to the new regulations cannot be imported, bought, sold, used or traded in China. Products that already have a voluntary CQC Mark certification according to the old GB2099.3-2008 will also be required to be certified according to the new regulations prior to the April 14, 2017 deadline.
The new requirements of GB2099.3-2015 are required to be met for a CCC change application. To qualify the audit report of the last voluntary CQC Mark certification should not be older than one year and the relevant designated test laboratory will need to be approved by the CNCA and CQC. They will determine if the laboratory has the appropriate accreditation and ability to test to the Chinese standard.
