Publication: Article about CCC certification of machines and technical devices published in German journal “MM MaschinenMarkt”14. January 2014
In order to be compliant with Chinese laws, certain machines and technical devices require CCC (China Compulsory Certification) to be imported and sold. The CCC certification is based on the published regulations of the China National Standard (also known as GB Standard) and the corresponding Implementation Rules. The GB Standards call out the criteria and parameters that must be met, where the Implementation Rules define the required CCC certification process, the character of the CCC certificate itself and required marking of the product with the “CCC” logo. The GB Standards are frequently updated making it a real challenge for manufacturers to keep up with the ever changing GB Standards and Implementation Rules.
In January 2014, Julian Busch CEO of China Certification Corporation, published an article about the CCC certification of machines and technical equipment. It can be found on the web pages of the German journal “MM MaschinenMarkt”, a professional journal for engineering, production, automation and related topics. The article “China Compulsory Certificate – Zertifizierung von Produkten für den chinesischen Markt” (“China Compulsory Certificate – Certification of products for Chinese market”) describes the CCC certification process as well as its challenges and opportunities.
China’s economy is still strongly driven by its Industrial sector. The People’s Republic has been a huge market for machines in the past and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. To cover the market and its demands and to exploit all its potentials, manufacturers must comply with CCC certification of their equipment and observe all of the Chinese import regulations. In spite of its complexity, with professional help a CCC certification can be completed within a few months. Strategic planning, diligent preparation of application documents, close communication with the relevant Chinese certification authority (the CQC, also known as China Quality Certification Center) and meticulous organization will ensure a successful CCC certification process. Due to the complex nature of the process it is recommended that a manufacturer has professional assistance to complete the CCC certification in a cost effective, timely manner with the best probability of success.
The article about CCC certification of machines and technical equipment will be published in the February 08, 2014 issue of the journal “MM MaschinenMarkt”, you can find it online here (only in German language).
