CCC Certification Now Compulsory for Motorcycle Helmets and Electric Blankets
All motorcycle helmets and electric blankets sold or otherwise distributed in China must now be approved by the country’s China Compulsory Certification (CCC) system. Previously, such items solely needed to secure a production permit.
Products in both categories will now have to comply with the relevant Certification and Accreditation Administration of China (CNCA) requirements, which came into force on 1 November this year. The procedure for switching from the permit-based system to the new CCC endorsement will be carried out in accordance with the Announcement of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and the CNCA on the Transitional Arrangements for Switching the Administration of Motorcyclist Helmets, Electric Blankets and Moped Products to China Compulsory Certification.
