Information about Certifications for China

Where certifications for China are concerned, Cisema can offer services – amongst others – in these three main areas: CCC certification, SELO licensing of pressure vessels and labeling with Energy Efficiency Labels (CEL).

Besides assistance for obtaining these certificates Cisema also offers post-certification services as for example obtaining renewals, extensions and modifications of existing certificates, permits and licenses.

Additionally there is a range of services of Cisema in the area of CCC certification which help you to import goods without obtaining a certificate.

  • CCC negative certificates (DFC: Define for Free of CCC, CNC – Certificate of Non-Applicability of CCC): These are for goods which do not require a CCC but despite this have been held by customs due to suspicions of certification obligations.
  • Exemptions: For goods which require CCC but qualify for exemption certificates due to their designated use or low quantity.
