What is the CCIC Quality Inspection for China?
China CCIC Quality Inspection is an inspection for products imported into China or imported from China that need to be checked for quality. The Chinese authority AQSIQ (General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine), which was founded in April 2001, is responsible for the quality control of imported and exported products. They control and monitor the import and export of products based on current laws and regulations. To control the administrative burden both within the country and outside China, there are numerous recognized bodies, including CCIC, which are authorized to carry out quality inspections independent of the manufacturer.
The CCIC Quality Inspection may be performed on a voluntary basis to confirm proof of product condition prior to shipment. In certain cases, however, the inspection may also be required to allow the goods to be imported. In cases where it is required, if no CCIC Quality Inspection Report is available, the goods must be returned back to the exporting country.

The performance of a CCIC Quality Inspection can have various reasons and can be performed on a wide variety of products. It should be noted that the inspection is not purely related to the production of products but can also be used to check the contents of a shipment.
