Reform of CCC Catalogue and CCC Certification Scheme

In 2018 and 2019, the Chinese authorities SAMR (State Administration for Market Regulation) and CNCA (Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China) have both published several Announcement (No. 11/2018 and No. 44/2019). They inform about the reform of the mandatory CCC product certification catalogue and about a new certification mode.

For manufactures and exporters of motor and automotive articles to China, this means that the CCC-scope has changed, as some product categories have been removed from the catalogue. Furthermore, the CCC self declaration mode was introduced for some products.

Please find further information on the revised CCC product catalogue and the new certification mode in our factsheet.

If you have further questions about the reform of CCC catalogue and CCC certification scheme, our experts will be happy to help you. Please contact us.
