Brief Introduction to CCC CCC is the statutory compulsory safety certification system and the basic approach to safeguard the consumers' rights and interests and protect the personal and property safety. On May 1, 2002, China CCC came into force. As you know, not all of the products need to obtain CCC certification. Only those listed in CCC Compulsory Catalogue need to do so before being imported, sold and used in business activities in China.
CCC Compulsory Catalogue In 2002, AQSIQ and CNCA were authorized to publish the “First Catalogue of Products Subject to CCC”. The first catalogue covers 135 products divided into 19 categories. But the categories have been altered many times since its first issue. The current CCC catalogue contains about 150 products divided into 21 categories. You may refer to this website:
CCC Categories CategoriesItems 01Electrical wires and cables(4 categories) 02Circuit switches, electric devices for protection or connection(6 categories) 03Low-voltage Electrical Apparatus(9 categories) 04Low power motor(1 categories) 05Electric tools(16 categories) 06Welding machine(15 categories) 07Household and similar electrical appliances(18 categories) 08Audio and video apparatus (not including the audio apparatus for broadcasting service and automobiles)(12 cat.) 09Information technology equipment(11 categories) 10Lighting apparatus (not including the lighting apparatus with the voltage lower than 36V)(2 categories) 11Motor vehicles(16 categories) 12Motor vehicle Tires(3 categories) 13Safety Glasses(3 categories) 14Agricultural Machinery(2 categories) 15Latex Product(1 categories) 16Telecommunication Terminal equipment(9 categories) 18Fire Fighting Equipment(7 categories) 19Safety Protection Product(5 categories) 20Wireless local area network (LAN) product(it is not mandatory now)(1 categories) 21Home Decor and Remodeling Product(3 categories) 22Toy Products(6 categories) This is the latest catalogue of CCC products. *The category 17 Medical Devices were removed to medical devices registration system.
CCC Implementation Rules Each category of products has its own implementation rules. The rules indicate product scopes, application method, required documents, testing requirements, factory inspection requirements, mark requirements, etc. CNCA is authorized to administer and formulate the implementation rules of the CCC. You can refer to this website for details:
CCC Certification Procedure This is the major procedure for CCC certification 1. Application for certification 2. Type testing 3. Initial inspection of the factory 4. Evaluation of certification results and approval of certification 5. Purchasing or Printing/Impressing CCC Mark 6. Follow-up inspection During the whole procedure, CQC will act as a certification body to review and approve the CCC certification. When the products meet all of the requirements, then CQC will issue the CCC certificate. Usually, a CCC certificate is valid for 5 years.

CCC Required Documents 1. Application form 2. Business licenses of applicant, manufacturer and factory separately 3. ODM or OEM declaration 4. Declaration of Conformity 5. Product assembly chart, circuit diagram for product and power supply 6. List of critical components and materials 7. Description of the difference between the different model of products in the same application unit 8. Label and Label location 9. User’s Manual in Chinese 10. CB report if applicable 11. The Questionnaire for Factory Inspection if applicable 12. Other necessary documents
CCC Testing CCC requires in-country testing by one of the accredited labs. That means the test labs must be authorized by CNCA and have designated product testing scope. CCC focuses on Safety and EMC testing Test standards are China GB standards. Most of them are identical with or stem from IEC or other international standards. Safety testing based on GB 4943 (IEC 60950) For EMC testing based on GB 9254 (EN 55022/55024) and GB (EN /33) When the testing standards updated, then the products need to apply for updating application to update the standards on the certificate and test report. If the applicant doesn’t do this, then the certificate will be superseded or canceled.
Initial Factory Inspection is required when a new factory or a new category product applies for CCC certification. It focuses on the quality control system of the factory. Usually, one to four inspectors will visit the factory and stay for one to four days depending on the factory size. Inspection items below are for your reference: 1. interview the responsible engineers in the factory 2. review the product quality system 3. witness the Dielectric Strength and Ground Resistance tests on the product CCC Initial Factory Inspection
Follow up inspection (Annual Factory Audit ) is for an approved product to maintain the CCC certificate. This factory audits focus on the manufacturing process of a specific product on the CCC certificate. It will be performed once or twice every year from the following year after granted. If the follow up inspection fails, then the CCC certificate will be suspended or cancelled. CCC Follow Up Inspection
CCC Mark After the CCC certificate has been issued, the applicant must apply for the certification mark before the products are marketed, imported, or used for any commercial purposes. There are two ways to apply CCC mark: 1.Purchase the printed CCC mark from CNCA, which is a standard mark with black design on a white background in fixed sizes. 2.Apply for self-printing CCC mark on your product label, which is a non- standard mark with different color so as to match the external color of the product or the label. And also it can vary in sizes, but must be in proportion to the standard marks.
CCC Mark These are a few different types of CCC mark: The letter on the mark reflects the type of certification. “S” represents “Safety” ; “ S & E” represents “Safety and EMC” “EMC” represents “EMC” ; ; “ F” represents “Fire Fighting”

Brief Introduction to China Radio Regulations On November 1, 2010, the China Radio Regulations for Radio Transmission Equipment was published by MIIT and came into force. The regulations require the radio transmission equipment must get the radio type approval before they are marketed. It is in order to guarantee the effective implementation of the radio control, safeguard national security and social public interests. SRRC is authorized to be responsible for the nationwide management of the radio frequency spectrum and acts as a certification body to approve the radio type approval.
SRRC Categories The SRRC or RTA applies to any radio transmission equipment which radiates radio wave for communication, navigation, location, direction-finding, remote control, telemetry, broadcasting, TV transmission and radar purposes. Such as: Digital Cellular Telecommunication System Wireless Access Equipment Short Range Device FM Transceiver Broadcasting Communication System
