Certification Authorities in China Closed for Chinese New Year21. January 2020
In 2020 the Chinese New Year falls on January 25, 2020 and heralds so the year of the rat. The date of this event, which is also known as spring festival, varies from year to year as it goes by the lunar calendar. Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China, therefore authorities and companies close a few days ahead to allow employees time to travel to their home.
The Chinese authorities will be closed for several days. According to official information the CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) will be closed from January 23, 2020 to January 31, 2020. The test labs will be closed during the same time period. The CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products) will also be closed from January 23, 2020 to February 3, 2020. So, it is expected that there will be delays for all ongoing certification processes.
MPR China Certification GmbH in Germany, as well as the subsidiaries in the US and China will be open and working as usual. We will gladly continue to support you with your certification processes during Chinese New Year.
