No Initial Factory Audits for Certification of Explosion Proof Products In China Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic9. April 2020
Due to the worldwide travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, no initial factory audits will be required for Chinese explosion protection CCC certification (CCC-Ex Certification). Please note this is based on the current situation and may change without notice. The Chinese authority NEPSI, which is responsible for the CCC certification of explosion-proof products, now issues the CCC certificates after the application has been submitted and product tests have been passed.
The audits must be rescheduled as soon as the situation has improved. A fixed date as to when the initial factory audits will need to be rescheduled has not yet defined.
Initial factory audits are usually the prerequisite for obtaining CCC certificates in connection with positive product tests and are always carried out by the auditors of the certification authorities from China.
For manufacturers of explosion-protected products, this offers the possibility of an enormous time savings in the certification process, especially in regard to the implementation deadline of the China Ex-Certification on October 1, 2020.
Manufacturers of affected products from the explosion protection area are therefore encouraged to start the certification process quickly in order to have the CCC-Ex certificates available in good time.
