CCC: Mandatory CCC certification for Interior Trimming Products11. December 2015
In the beginning of 2015, the Chinese certification authorities have issued new Implementation Rules Rules for interior trimming material which include new products that will now be required to have CCC.
Starting from January 01, 2016, the newly added parts must show a valid CCC certification when entering the Chinese market. Otherwise this may lead to severe problems at Chinese customs.
In our news section, we have recently informed you about the updates of the Chinese certification authorities. The largest Chinese certification authority CQC (China Quality Certification Centre, chin. „中国质量认证中心“) and the Chinese certification authority CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products, chin. „中汽认证中心“) both recently published their own version of Implementation Rules for the CCC certification of interior trimming materials.
These new Implementation Rules apply for the interior trimming materials with minimum dimensions of 356mm x 100mm which are installed in driver/passenger compartment and luggage compartment. Parts located in the engine compartment are only CCC-relevant if they have a heat-isolating function.
According to the most recent status, all interior trimming parts with minimum size 356mm x 100mm are subject to mandatory CCC certification. Some examples of currently included products are:
– sun visor
– sound insulating material (e.g. acoustic tiles)
– sun sheet
– instrument panel
– center console
– air ducts and cable channels
