Compulsory CCC certification for brake linings from June 1, 20215. May 2020
With the announcement number 19/2020, the state market regulatory authority SAMR announced that CCC for brake linings of motor vehicles will be mandatory starting June 1, 2021. Up until now, these products could be imported to China by using a product licensing process. After this date, brake lining products without CCC can no longer be imported or sold in China.
As of June 1, 2020, applications for product licensing will no longer be accepted, but applications for CCC certification can be submitted to the relevant Chinese authorities.
The applicable standard for brake linings is GB 5763-2018 which became effective on October 1, 2019.
Manufacturers currently in possession of valid Chinese product licenses and no longer importing brake linings to China after June 1, 2021 will not need to apply for the CCC certification.
The CCC certification for brake linings includes application with supporting documentation, product tests and a factory inspection/audit. Test reports, inspection reports or other documents previously obtained during the product licensing process can be checked by the certifying authority and may be acknowledged where applicable.
The CCC certification is significantly more extensive and time-consuming than the product licensing process. We encourage manufacturers to start this process as soon as possible since we would anticipate test delays and limited certification inspection delays due to capacities and the rush for certifications to complete before the June 1, 2021.
