CCC: Randomized Inspections of Imported Cars by the CIQ21. November 2014
In November 2014, the Chinese government authority CIQ (China Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau) published an article on its website regarding randomized inspections of imported cars in order to check their CCC Certification.
The China based government body AQSIQ (General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine) is the administrative body for matters related to quality control, inspections concerning import and export cases, certifications as well as accreditations. In order to fulfill these tasks on a local scale, the Chinese customs authority CIQ is responsible for import and export control of products in China. CIQ owns 35 local branches located in 31 Chinese provinces to maintain consistent quality standards through close cooperation with laboratories, local branches, and further government agencies.
Recently, the Chinese customs authority conducted randomized inspections of imported cars in close cooperation with a third institution. International car brands such as Renault, Audi, Volkswagen, Toyota, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Volvo and seven further manufacturers were affected. A total of 18 vehicles were involved in the checks. Furthermore, regular as well as randomized inspections in order to check CCC certifications of imported cars are scheduled to be conducted to a greater extent in the future.
The certification of complete vehicles is a sophisticated project which requires professional consultation. Besides professional know-how, also long-standing experience is essential to successfully pass through the process of preparation, application and the certification of suppliers.
