What does it mean to be CCC approved?

The China Compulsory Certification (CCC) is similar to other certifications for product quality standardisation, such as the European CE certification. The CCC certificate applies to both imported goods and Chinese products. The CCC mark system requires manufacturers in over 132 product categories to obtain the CCC mark before exporting to or selling in the Chinese market. For products that are required to be CCC certified, GB standards must be used. GB is an abbreviation for Guobiao (国标) which translates to ‘National Standards’ in Chinese. GB standards are the basis for the product testing which products must undergo during the certification process to be CCC approved .  

 

CQC

Products which are not in the compulsory certification catalogue and cannot receive a CCC Certificate (China Compulsory Certificate) have the option to apply for a voluntary product certification.This CQC Mark Certification is a voluntary product certification. It is conducted by the official certification authority CQC (China Quality Certification Center). The CQC is sanctioned by the governmental agency CCIC (China Certification & Inspection Group) to manage the mandated process for manufacturers to get their CCC certification. For voluntary products certification GB/T standards can be used. GB/T is an abbreviation for Guó Jiā Biāo Zhǔn, which means a national standard in Chinese where ‘T’ means ‘recommended’.
