China Compulsory Certification list update in October means that nine (9) product categories that are considered to have low safety risks and mature technology no longer need to obtain the CCC before selling in China.
On October 10, 2022, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) issued announcement No. 34 updating the CCC catalogue for the involved 9 product categories that now no longer require mandatory CCC.
In line with the State Council’s announcement on deepening the reform of the regulatory regime of the electrical and electronic industry (No. 31 Document), China’s Quality Certification Center (CQC) no longer engages in CCC certification and testing activities for the 9 product categories for which mandatory CCC is no longer be required. The CQC will cancel any issued CCC certificates in accordance with the requirements of “SAMR Announcement No. 34”.
The CQC has developed a new voluntary certification business (hereinafter referred to as CQC certification). Companies may now voluntarily apply for CQC certification for those products that no longer fall within the scope of CCC.
Companies that have already obtained a CCC certificate issued by the CQC can voluntarily fill in the Certification Conversion Application Form.
The conversion process is free of charge. The replacement CQC certificate number will be “CQC + original CCC certificate number”. The validity period of the CQC certificate is the same as the validity period on the original CCC certificate.
For applications in the process of CCC certification (which have been accepted and implemented, but certificates have not yet been issued), companies may apply for conversion if required. In such instances, please contact the CQC engineer, and it will be processed according to the new situation.
