CCC Certification

Basis for market approval China

After the China Compulsary Certificate has been issued, the manufacturer must acquire the certification label from the Chinese authority. After the CCC certificate is issued, the manufacturer applies for the use of the logo. This must be done before the product can be marketed, imported, imported and used for commercial purposes.

The CCC was introduced in 2002 and applies both to products of foreign manufacturers that are to be imported into China and to Chinese products. Therefore, in this case one can speak of a generally applicable certification standard.
