Delays in the Certification Process due to Chinese New Year Holidays 201929. January 2019
The Chinese authorities will shut down for several days during the Chinese New Year holidays. According to official announcements, the CCAP (China Certification Centre for Automotive Products) is going to be closed from February 2, 2019 to February 14, 2019. The CQC (China Quality Certification Centre) will also shut down from February 2, 2019 but is set to reopen on February 11, 2019.
The Chinese New Year festivities are the most important holidays of the year in China and lead to record-breaking annual travel activities. With an expected amount of about 400 million travelers, it is the largest annual human migration of people, mainly traveling back to their hometowns to celebrate the holidays with family. Even though New Year’s Eve is officially on February 4, 2019, many companies and authorities close a few days earlier in order to allow their employees to travel during that famously busy period. Commercial activities are expected to resume normally from calendar week 8.
Due to the holidays and business closures, the certification authorities and test laboratories are expected to have delays for CCC applications and ongoing certification processes.
