TÜV Rheinland Hong Kong launches China Compulsory Certification Services for electrical and electronic products
In cooperation with the China Quality Certification Center (CQC) TÜV Rheinland Hong Kong has successfully launched China Compulsory Certification (CCC) services. Our Hong Kong office is now the only TÜV Rheinland location to offer CCC testing for household and similar use appliances and information technology equipment that belong to electric product categories in Mainland China.
Since the signing of the Supplement VII to the Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA), Mainland China has been gradually opening up its CCC market to Hong Kong testing and certification bodies. Testing organizations in Hong Kong are now allowed to co-operate with designated Mainland certification bodies to undertake testing of all products that require CCC which are processed or manufactured in any place, including places outside China. The limitation of manufacturing place and scope was ceased since the amendment agreement in November 2019 and effective since 1 June 2020. Hong Kong office obtained the accreditation according to the Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (HOKLAS) for CCC product certification testing almost 10 years ago. With support from the Greater China government relations team, we have finally cooperated with CQC to launch the CCC service.
CCC is implemented by the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA) to ensure safety for consumers in China. The certification program covers a list of 103 products in 17 categories, including electrical and electronic products (E&E), motor, children product, and many more. All listed products being imported to the Chinese market must fulfill the CCC requirements.
TÜV Rheinland offers a one stop service for the CCC certification process: application, testing, certification issuance and follow-up inspection. We can assist the client with a fast CCC Mark Certification for China to accelerate their entrance to the market.
