The Numbers on China’s Progress in Certification Released9. November 2017
At the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China held in 2012 the Central Committee announced to place product quality in a more prominent position and increase the attention given towards certification and accreditation work. China’s most important certification and accreditation administration CNCA has been following the progress over the years and recently released information on the progress.
There are 387 certification authorities in China who have certified approximately 1.8 million products and more than 600.000 organizations worldwide. In terms of the amount of product certifications, China has been leading the world for many years now. The product categories that require CCC have been increasing continuously as well. China has established stricter requirements towards product quality, environmental standards, energy and water saving and product manufacturing.
According to a survey of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the effectiveness of quality management systems within the ISO9001 certified companies has been improved significantly. There has also been an increase of product quality as shown by the test sample passing rates. In 2016, 90.3% of test samples passed, this compared to 78.5% passing rate shown in 2011. Another survey in the Southern Guangdong province revealed, that the sample test passing rate of certified companies is in average 10% higher than the ones of non-certified companies. Considering these numbers, the Congress’ aim of promoting social development in accordance with economic growth is proving to be successful.
