CCC: Update to the New CNCA Implementation Rules27. December 2016
As already reported in previous news, the update of existing CCC certificates to the new Implementation Rules must be completed before the end of 2016. This includes, but is not limited to product categories such as interior trimming products and seats. Companies whose certificates still show the old implementing rules must submit their COP plan to the relevant authority by the end of 2016. This is necessary for both the CCAP and the CQC.
In the case of the CCAP, the update of the certificates to the new implementation rules must be finished by December 31, 2016. With the CQC it is sufficient to submit the COP plan and have it approved by the CQC before the end of 2016.
If the COP plan has been accepted by the CQC a “CQC Modification Approval” will be issued. After the CQC Modification Approval has been received, the certificates can be updated to the new implementation rules in the course of the next annual follow-up inspection in 2017. If the COP plan is not submitted by December 31, 2016, the CQC Modification Approval will not be issued. This means that the CCC certificates of the affected manufacturer will no longer valid and the products may be held in the customs.
If you have not submitted your COP plan yet, you should do so as soon as possible. In this case, you should definitely hire a consulting company that supports you, since the CQC is very strict regarding this necessary Implementation Rule update, and it cannot happen without submitting the CoP plan and receiving the Modification Approval.
