CCC: Updated Regulations for Small Power Motors20. October 2015
The Chinese authority CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration) published 17 new Implementation Rules affecting CCC Certification of various products last year (2014). You can read more about this topic here.
Small power motors were among the affected products. The new implementation rule CNCA-C04-01:2014 for electric power tools replaces the previous Implementation Rule CNCA 01C-013-2007. The new implementation rule for electric power tools became effective in September 1st, 2014.
The following small power motors are affected by this implementation rule:
- Small power motors
- Fractional and middlehorse-power motors
You can find the complete list of CNCA implementation rules for electric power tools on our website here.
Manufacturers who export their products to China will need to update their certificates by the end of 2016 to remain in compliance. Re-testing may be required, so it is recommended to start the process early.
The new regulation also concerns applicants for certificates who are in the process, but have not received their CCC certificate yet. These products get CCC certification in accordance to the new implementation rules automatically.
Manufacturers need to be aware that the scope of CCC certification is continually expanding requiring CCC for products that previously did not need CCC. If you are uncertain whether your product needs CCC or not, please contact us. We gladly check and let you know.
