CNCA Announces Omission of Compulsory CCC Certification for Certain Products

19. June 2018

In June 2018, the Certification and Accreditation Authority of China (CNCA) published an announcement No. 11-2018 which includes a list of products that will no longer be subject to CCC certification in China. As of now, affected products may no longer be marked with the CCC logo.

However, the respective product requirements, which are laid down in the national Chinese standards, the so-called GB standards, continue to apply. In order to be able to legally import or sell products in China, conformity with Chinese standards is essential.

New CCC regulations have come into force with immediate effect.

The most reliable way to guarantee and demonstrate conformity of production is ensured through a voluntary certification. The Chinese Certification Authorities China Quality Certification Center (CQC) and the China Certification Center for Automotive Products (CCAP) also offer to convert existing CCC certificates into voluntary CQC or CCAP certificates. The basic process of voluntary certifications and the corresponding follow-ups are almost identical to the CCC certification, only the logo for the marking is different.

Please find below an unofficial translation of the list published by the CNCA:
