CCC: CQC Publishes Additional Requirements for Car Manufacturers regarding New Implementation Rules1. July 2015
In June of 2015, the Chinese certification authority CQC (China Quality Certification Centre, in Chinese: 中国质量认证中心) published an announcement on their website regarding the recently published CNCA implementation rules for CCC certification of complete cars and automotive components and to the corresponding requirements for updating CCC certificates.
The CQC announcement affects vehicle manufacturers holding CCC certificates for their cars and exporting them into the Chinese market. It states that CCC certificates for cars with SoP (“Start of Production”) earlier than December 31, 2015 showing the former CNCA regulation number can remain valid until EoP (“End of Production”). The manufacturer will be required to prepare a special conformity declaration for certain automotive components and submit it to CQC. However, the detailed requirements for this declaration are not yet defined by the announcement.
The regulations in this new announcement were developed by CQC only. This CQC announcement is not yet consistent with the rules of other certification bodies, such as CCAP, or even that of higher-ranking institutions, such as the CNCA. Before The CNCA, CCAP and CQC will issue a joint announcement it has to be assumed that CCC certification remains mandatory for all automotive spare parts which are exported to China – even if they are built into a car with SoP before December 31, 2015. Since the CQC notice is explicitly addressed to car manufacturers, the possible consequences for automotive suppliers are unknown and still in internal clarification process. Automotive suppliers should continue implementing the requirements in CNCA announcement number 31 from August 21, 2014.
