SAMR Conducts Unannounced Tests on Specific Products in China

5. November 2019

The SAMR (State Administration for Market Regulation) has launched unannounced tests on several product groups from 80 different plants between July and August 2019. Out of a total of 110 tested products, 19 had significant safety deficiencies, therefore CCC certificates for these products were canceled with immediate effect.

This shows how strictly the product conformity is controlled by the Chinese authorities. Random checks can also take place during import or distribution of the products.

Even non-CCC products must comply with Chinese GB standards and security requirements.

We highly recommend that you have your products that do not require CCC certification or have to be certified as part of a CCC self-declaration certified to a voluntary CCAP certification or CQC certification. This will greatly reduce the risk of problems at customs and for the manufacturer.

A voluntary China certification proves that continued compliance with Chinese GB standards and regulations regarding quality, safety, environment and performance is guaranteed. Thus, the manufacturer guarantees that his product meets the corresponding Chinese quality requirements. It thereby increases the competitiveness of its product in the local Chinese market and minimizes the risk of problems with inspections by the SAMR.

National quality labels have a much greater importance in the China than, for example, the CE logo. In many product areas, it has now become standard to have a voluntary certification and the corresponding marking. A Chinese certificate also minimizes customs problems considerably.

The voluntary CQC or CCAP certification is almost identical to the mandatory CCC certification. Only the marking is different.
