Market Approval for China

With CETECOM you know what is important and right.

In order to obtain market approval for products for China, a manufacturer is increasingly faced with the question of which approval regime must be used as the basis for approving a product for the Chinese market.

For technical products, three different certification regimes apply here, whose applicability and necessity depends on the product and the technologies used there:

  • China Compulsory Certificate (CCC certification)
  • MII/NAL certification
  • SRRC certification

The three certification regimes differ in terms of necessity, test requirements documentation, complexity and validity period.

CCC certification

Products requiring certification, such as information technology equipment, telecommunications equipment and accessories or medical devices, may only be sold and used on the Chinese market once CCC certification has been obtained.

MII/NAL certification

NAL certification is essential for telecommunications products that are connected to the public telecommunications network.

More information

SRRC certification

Only after a successful SRRC certification an application for a NAL certification can be processed, because the test results of a SRRC certification are the basis for a NAL certification.
