About the CCC certification mark
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 about 150 products in 20 categories covered in the CCC scope.
CCC certification required 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.
The value of CCC certification
In order to import or sell products in China, companies need to demonstrate that they have obtained the CCC Mark. This applies to goods that are manufactured in China as well. Failure to comply with CCC regulations will lead to imported goods being detained at the border or returned to the sender. Likewise, improper use of CCC licenses or printing a CCC-mark on products without certification will also result in fines and penalties.
