    About the CCC certification

    China Compulsory Certification (CCC) is a mandatory scheme implemented since 2002. Products within the CCC scope must get CCC certification before imported or placed into the China market. Both electrical and non electrical products are covered. The list has been updated several times since its first implementation. So far, there are more than 100 products covered in the CCC scope. 

    Required testing

    CCC certification requires both safety and EMC testing. The testing can only be done by designated lab in China and certification must be issued by CNCA designated certification body.  For safety, the interntational CB test certificate and report can be accepted, while sample is still required for identity checking and necessary national deviation testing at the designated lab.   For EMC, you have to send sample to the designated lab in China for testing.
