China Green Label Certification for car tires12. May 2022
“Green Label Certification” is a product certification for sustainable products in China. The latest addition to the list are car tires that in addition to mandatory CCC certification can now also be certified as “green”. The CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) just published the corresponding implementation rules.
Chinese consumers increasingly put a focus on sustainability, as well as saving energy and resources. The Chinese government also aims to encourage consumers to switch to “green” products. To achieve this goal the government launched the “China Green Label Certification” in 2017. The new certification scheme replaces several earlier ones that were not nearly as comprehensive. The certification scheme focuses on the product itself, the production methods, materials and recyclability of the product. For example, the production processes must be environmentally friendly, save water and produce as little CO2 as possible and the materials used should be either ecological or recyclable.
Overall, the “Green Label Certification” intends to spread awareness of sustainable products in the Chinese market. The new logo also increases familiarity and trust in the new system.
Authorities are constantly expanding the list of products to be certified. Recently the Chinese authority added a number of new consumer goods to the scope of certification. The latest additions to the list are car tires, refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines. However, car tires must still be certified “green” according to GB/T 40718-2021.
In addition, CCC certification still applies to many products.
