CCC: Updated Regulations for Electric Power Tools1. October 2015
The Chinese authority CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration) published 17 new regulations („Implementation Rules“) affecting the CCC Certification of various products in the middle of 2014. You can read more about this topic here.
Therefore, new electric power tools are included in these new regulations. The new implementation rule (CNCA-C05-01:2014) for electric power tools replaces the old one (CNCA 01C-014-2007).
The following electric power tools are affected by this implementation rule:
- Screwdrivers and impact wrenches
- Electric grinders
- Electric hammers and shears
- Electric chain saws
You can find the whole list of CNCA implementation rules for electric power tools on our website here.
The new implementation rule for electric power tools became effective in September 1st, 2014.
Manufacturers, who want to export their products to China and sell them as before, will need to update their certificates until the end of 2016 and get their products re-tested if required. This regulation also concerns applicants for certificates, who do not have CCC certificates for their products yet. These products get CCC certificates according to the new implementation rule automatically.
Manufacturers have to be aware that products which were not CCC mandatory so far, could need CCC by now. If you are uncertain whether your product needs CCC or not, please contact us. We are glad to provide further assistance.
