CCC: New Implementation Rules for CCC Certification of Vehicles22. September 2015
The Implementation Rules are the foundation of the CCC certification. They define the certification necessity, the process of certification and the required marking of the product with the CCC logo. There are regulations frequently added to the already existing implementation rules. Implementation rules for interior parts, fuel tanks and seat belts are only three examples within the numerous implementation rules for CCC mandatory products.
The implementation rules are accompanied by the corresponding Chinese GB Standard (National Standard) which define the scope, parameters and dispositive limits for product testing required for the CCC certification. All regulations are issued by the CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China), therefore each number includes the index “CNCA.”
The first draft of the completely revised “Rules for the Implementation of Compulsory Certification of Motor Vehicles (Vehicle and trailer products)”, CNCA-02C-023:2012, were published in 2012 by the CNCA. The comprehensive rules represent the basic framework for the CCC certification of vehicles.
Since 2012, the rules clearly differentiate between the types of certification: Complete car CCC certification, Non-Mass Production CCC or Low Volume CCC exemption. There were also changes in the requirements of test products. A lot of new components were added to the catalogue, so that since then all products must be tested in accordance to the specific GB Standard.
The changements already caused a lot of consequences for car manufacturers who already have models that have been CCC certified. Since the revision of 2012 there are no more time frames of the administration’s and laboratories’ processes. Additionally there have also been changes in the application forms as well as the required “technical description forms.”
On August 21st, 2014 the CNCA published an even newer version of the Implementation Rules for Vehicles, which replaces all older versions. Since 2015, the Chinese administration demands all initial certification processes to be executed according to the newest version, which is named CNCA-C11-01:2014.
We are always publishing the official announcements of the Chinese authorities in our “News” section. Please check our website regularly since these official announcements are often made without any advanced notice. Also in 2015 there have already been a big quantity of announcements regarding changes and updates in Chinese GB Standards and other CCC regulations. The Chinese administration has, for example, published a lot of new Implementation Rules regarding the automotive sector’s interior trimming material. The catalogue of CCC-relevant products is constantly being expanded and updated.
