New Regulations for Voluntary CQC Mark Certification of Warning Triangles for Vehicles23. November 2017
Warning triangles are currently not subject to CCC certification in China. Since 2010, however, it is possibly to apply for a so-called voluntary CQC Mark Certification. Getting this certification for your products has many advantages for manufacturers: The certification not only proves that your products comply with Chinese standards, thus granting you greater competitiveness in the Chinese market. It also minimizes customs issues considerably. In the event of an unexpected change of the regulations, such as the inclusion of warning triangles in the catalog of CCC mandatory products, it requires relatively little effort and time to transform the CQC into a CCC certificate.
The authority in charge for the certification of warning triangles is the China Quality Certification Center (CQC). In 2017, it has been the first time that CQC adjusted the relevant implementation rules for warning triangles. The new version has the number CQC16-429991-2017 and is already valid. Important changes of the rules are, amongst others, new methods for product grading and stricter rules for production control.
Product tests are a mandatory part of the CCC and CQC certification. The regulations for these tests are specified in the GB-standards, the Chinese national regulations. In this regard there have been no changes to the current regulation. For the time being, product tests of warning triangles will continue to be carried out according to GB 19151-2003 (Warning triangles for motor vehicle).
